So technically, Seth is still breastfeeding exclusively, but man does he want to eat real food! I've been holding out to start rice cereal until the official six month mark, but I couldn't resist letting him slobber all over an apple slice one day. He was grabbing at my snack so I gave in and let him have a taste. He was shaking with excitement as I handed him his slice. If he doesn't actually ingest the food, then it's not really eating . . . just licking!
Last Sunday Seth got a hold of a book while he was rolling around on the floor and spent a few minutes chewing on the black binding. Alas, ink all over his face. He looked like a baby hobo with a five o'clock shadow! Sariah thought it was so funny, she gave the book to him again that evening!
Playing airplane with Mama. I don't take many pictures of myself (mostly cause I'm critical of how I look in them), but a friend of mine posted on her blog that she's trying to take more pictures of herself so that down the road, her kids remember that she was "very much there in everything we did." I thought that was profound, so I'm following suit.
