First Foods!

The boys had their first taste of solid foods just over a week ago- then they got that darn cold I've mentioned in previous posts and it took me a while to get the pics off my camera. Anyhoo, here they are!

I wasn't sure what to expect this time around as Colin was soo not into solid foods (he's still my picky eater.)

However, this time around was quite a different experience. For example, I thought Finn might bite my finger off as I approached his mouth with the spoonful of rice cereal! Everett was reaching for the bowl so forcefully that he sent it flying against the wall. By the way, if that happens to you, consider cleaning it immediately. Once that rice cereal dries, it is way sticky to get off. Trust me on this one.

Carter was very eager to eat too, but typical Carter, he patiently waited. :-)

The highchairs we're using, are these from IKEA. I love them! They don't take up a lot of room, easily fold up when you're not using them, and you can push them up against the table counter. And- they were super inexpensive!

Once I realized we were officially into solid foods, I took a trip to Whole Foods to buy enough food to last a few weeks.

Here I am at the checkout:

I mean seriously?! How ridiculous is that?
With Colin, I mostly made my own baby food but this time around I'm feeling like I just can't. There are already too many things on my plate, so to speak. But man is baby food pricey! Especially the organic stuff. If you live near a Whole Foods you might already know this, but if you buy more than 12 jars of any baby food, you get a 10 percent discount. Whoo hoo! I'll take it!
