Learning to Eat and More Random Stuff

Miles had his first taste of solid food about two weeks ago. His pediatrician said to skip rice cereal because it's not very nutritious, and get him going on the yellow veggies and fruit. For his first meal we tried butternut squash which did not go over very well! But now a few weeks into it, he's really getting the hang of things. He loves pears, peaches, carrots, sweet potatoes, and he's even taken a liking to the squash! It's so much fun :)

Miles loves sleeping on his side now. He takes after me :)

Two handsome dudes.

Miles' First Cold

It's arrived. Miles has his first cold, poor little fella. It's mostly just a lot of congestion, but it's enough to keep him (and me) from getting a good night's sleep. It's tough seeing your child get sick! I just want to make everything better and it's hard knowing I can't. I've been flushing his nose with saline to loosen things up, which has helped a little. If things are bad tonight we're off to Walmart for a humidifier. I know, I know, I'm such a typical first-time mom! But this is my life and I'm gonna blog about it! :) Pray for no more snot and a decent night's sleep! I'm open to suggestions...

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. It's even more fun now that I have a kid! Miles dressed up as a tiger for his first Halloween. He looked so stinkin' cute. He was too little to go trick-or-treating of course, but we had fun hauling him around at various parties nonetheless. I couldn't quite tell if he liked his costume, but he did enjoy gumming the zipper, and by the end of the night he had quite the drool patch down the front! Good times.
