6 1/2 Month Update

For the past month or so, we've been attempting to introduce Olivia to solid foods. After several weeks of her rejecting the rice cereal, the doc said to go ahead and try fruits and veggies. So began the journey from sweet potatoes, to squash, to bananas, to applesauce, to pears, to peaches...and she ultimately rejected all of them! I finally gave her some of our mashed potatoes one day, and she loved them! She has now been eating them for about a week, and we've even mixed in some sweet potatoes and she still liked them! So we don't know if the mashed potatoes were the miracle food, or if she was just finally ready to eat.

I also decided to give her one of those teething biscuit cookies... although she loved it, there were bits of cookie everywhere! After spending about 15 minutes cleaning cookie out of every crack and crevice of her hands, arms and face, I STILL found more under her neck. I'm beginning to think she bathed in it when I wasn't looking! However, it made for some humorous photos, especially when she turned to look at our cat, Leo, and turned back without holding onto the cookie. Too cute! She definitely enjoyed it though!

Debi has to give you info on the teething biscuits from Wild Oats (health food store in Miami). Alex loves them....they don't crumble or get too gooey and he smells like pancake syrup for days! Ha! We will bring you a box when we come up over Mother's Day Weekend!
