So it's not as easy as it sounds...

On Thursday, I was ready! I was ready to reduce the number of bottles Parker drinks in a day, ween her from the bottle, and start feeding her more things that we eat. So Thursday night I open a baby food jar called 'Tender Chicken and Stars.' The name reminded me of chicken noodle soup...so I thought "This should taste all right..." Wrong! I did warm it up slightly (I mean, it's dinner..right?). I even tasted it myself and it did resemble chicken noodle soup, except no salt (so very bland). So I scoop a little into the spoon, and Parker trustingly takes a bite. Before she even swallowed she began gagging..."blah...blah..." then "blaaaaah." She made herself sick! Bless her heart! Needless to say, I no longer tried to feed her the Tender Chicken and Stars!! So the first day of trying this 'new food' wasn't too successful. However, I am happy to report that yesterday and today have been much better. And today she only had 4 bottles!!! And with 3 of the 4 bottles I started her out with the sippy cup, and she drank a couple of ounces, but then she was done messing with it. But I am happy with that! We'll just take it a day at a time...trying to figure it out...did she get enough dairy, protein, fruit, veggies, carbs?" Did she get enough fluids? Does this amount of food make her full, or will she be hungry again in an hour? Will it make her little tummy hurt? Fun, fun, fun! We are learning! (or at least trying to!)

What can I say...our little girl is growing up! She has now graduated from her sleepers and she is now in pajamas! Below are pictures in her new pj's!

She will surely let you know though I'll bet if she is hungry. What about spaghetti-o's or something like that? I know our grandbabies loved them and as a matter of fact still do as well as mac and cheese. Her little jammies are precious, she is precious too! Love you all, Aunt "B"

Good Luck with the baby food. My daughter now 15 months old never took to it. We always fed her food from the table....and she didn't get her first tooth until she was 11 months. You will be amazed at what they can chew with their gums.
