Justin is 5 months old today. He’s been showing an interest in food lately, so we set up his high chair and mixed up a bit of rice cereal. It was definitely time. He loved it! He tried to help hold the spoon and helped me get it into his mouth. It was messy, but less than I thought it would be–I’m surprised at how much actually went down.
So now we need to add this to our daily routine. I think one of the biggest challenges new parents face is working the baby’s schedule into our schedule. Or is it the other way around? Ideally, one of us can be feeding him while the other gets supper ready. But there are at least two nights a week where I’m not home and DH needs to eat sooner than when I get home. We’ll work it out.
