Solid food, take two

Yup, Jack's experience with solid food last night was what you'd call a "fluke." Tonight was much more what we were expecting to witness last night. His faces were priceless, there was food everywhere, and I truly thought he was going to lose it a couple of times. We didn't push it too much. He did seem to enjoy the bananas more than the rice, but no big deal. After all, he doesn't NEED anything more, nutritionally speaking, than breast milk until he is nine months old. So we'll just take our time and get his feet wet with this new food. Not literally, of course.

The other big news in the world of solid food is that Jack had his first solid food bowel movement this evening. Yes, my blog has been reduced to talking about my six-month-old's poop. I'd always heard it would be really different when solids were introduced. Without getting into too much detail, I can say that the color was the same, while the consistency and the smell were a little different. There you have it.

Now for some six-month pictures!

Sleeping with Daddy. We've got a few "sleeping with Daddy" pictures. It's a classic. :)

Bath time! One of my favorite things about Jack being able to sit up is the fact that we can give him baths in the kitchen sink. It's great. I rarely post pictures of him with no shirt on, so let me take this opportunity to point out the birth mark under his nipple. It's adorable.

Here's Jack with one of his favorite toys (besides the Livestrong bracelet, empty waterbottles, and diaper wipe containers, of course). It's a set of buckets with little fish that go inside them. That doesn't sound cool, but he loves it. :)

Well, I'm trying like heck to add two more pictures, but blogger won't let me right now. I'll try again soon. :)
