The above smile didn't last long.
I've been resisting starting solid foods (which is something of a misnomer--these first foods are pretty runny, maybe we should call them spoon foods instead) for a few reasons: I think we started Abby on them too early and I'm pretty convinced that it changed the way she nursed after that; it's just another thing to do/clean up/think about; I'm not looking forward to the smelly diaper bombs that inevitably come with spoon foods.
Someone else in the house is doing something new lately, too--this guy! Ben is starting to dabble in coffee drinking!! I know! Who would ever have thought?!? He's growing up so fast. :-)
