Four months old...

Do you know what that means? Solids!! Admittedly, I caved and let Holden try very watery cereal a few weeks ago in the hope that he would take to it and ease up on formula a bit, but tonight, Holden tried BANANAS (with a little bit of cereal). With Scarlett, we went all vegatables in the beginning thinking that if she tried fruit she'd never ever eat vegatables. Ever. I can honestly say that I don't know what difference that made. So tonight, bananas were on the menu for Holden's first "baby food" meal to celebrate his 4 month birthday. Boy. Do we know how to party. "Wait. This doesn't look like cereal. This looks GOOD.""Oh man. This even tastes good.""Really good.""Really REALLY good."
Then...not so much. Near the end of his second helping, Holden got pissed. Like really pissed. Like "make me a bottle now and get this stuff out of my face" pissed. He sulked for about an hour afterwards. But it's okay. He ate almost 2 helpings before losing his cool. And honestly, he can do no wrong right now. He's been sleeping through the night for a week now. It's heavenly.

Yay solids! And Super Yay for sleeping babies!

I can't believe he is old enough for solids. Those 4 months felt like an eternity with Carson.
