Guess who decided to eat rice cereal today??


Today I decided to be brave and attempt the rice cereal again. I took the advice of my mom and mixed in alittle applesauce. The boy ate 1 tbsp of cereal (mixed with 3 tbsp of formula) and quickly! I couldn't get it in his mouth quick enough! He loved it! He even grabbed the spoon several times and tried to get it into his mouth. After that, he took a 5 oz bottle and sucked down every drop! Of course, he was a mess, but it was so much fun, I didn't even care! And he weighed in at 14 lbs 1 oz this morning!

I am so relieved that he took his cereal so well. Thanks for all your encouragement and support; I love getting all your advice!

So exciting! sometimes the combination of applesauce and cereal can be very constipating...hopefully not in Coy's case. :)

Yea for Coy! By the looks of it, he's thinking ... "Mom, why didn't you let me try this apple stuff sooner?!?" He just wanted a little flavor! :O) I'm so happy to hear that the doctor said Coy's eyes are looking great. What a blessing!

Congratulations, Coy! This is wonderful news. I celebrate so much whenever I read that a baby of ours does a nice job with his or her food. And Coy is a star!
