Time to Eat

Today at daycare, we started a real effort to get Owen eating some solids. We think he's been fussy lately because he's not satisfied with just a bottle, so Miss Megan gave him a lunch of rice cereal. He ate it up! The result: a wonderful day at daycare, a happy, laughing kid this evening, and a pleasant bedtime routine. I guess we'll keep working on the feedings.

In some ways, I'm excited for Owen to start exploring new foods. On the other hand, it's a little sad to realize how fast he is growing up. We're prepared though. Santa already delivered Owen's Christmas gift - a high chair. Looks like he has a little growing to do before we'll use it. Thankfully we have a bumbo chair and his swing that should work for feedings for now.

Oh, and here's why we had everyone giggling and pointing at us when we walked around the Christmas Parade this weekend. Scott got lots of comments about his "two heads," but Owen was warm and happy the whole time we were out.

I love the two heads! How cute is that?!

It is pretty fun to feed them new foods. I love to see Elsie's reaction and find out what she like and doesn't like. Good luck!

Dang! I am so jealous! But happy for you guys, solids are so nice, but I know what you mean by it being sad...it is just more evidence that they are growing up!
