First food

Well, we were going to start yesterday, but we were invited to a party at last minute and didn't get home until bedtime (plus I hadn't actually bought the cereal yet).

Today we went up to Babies R Us and I bought a canister of HappyBaby Rice Cereal with DHA and Probiotics. It actually is cheaper than Gerber Rice Cereal with DHA, and I heard good things about HappyBaby from a blog I read, so I figured I'd try it.

Holy crap, did he *LOVE* his cereal. He was so hungry he ate 2 tablespoons of the cereal (thinned with about 3 ounces of breastmilk), so about 8 tablespoons or so of cereal overall.

We filmed his feeding, but it's 15 minutes long. I'll edit it and post a short clip in my next post. In the meantime, enjoy the following pics:

Half Birthday!

Today is Alex's half birthday. I can't believe it's been 6 months already!

Tomorrow he goes to the Pediatrician and we'll see just how much he weighs, how long he is, and how big his head is. Oh, and he'll get some vaccines. That's the not fun part.

Sunday we're going to start solids! I already have the sweet potatoes!
Here are some recent pics:
