...little milestones...

Emerson had her first taste of baby food this week...and she lOved every bite of it. And when I say that she lOved it, i mean she rEaLLy lOved it! I fixed up some oatmeal & pears in this bowl & thought to myself "this is waaaay too much." But I was wrong...very, very wrong... She actually ate two of these bowls full of oatmeal & pears! Needless to say, I'm very happy about it...Zac eats like a bird & it seems like I'm constantly trying to get sOmeThing into that little stomach of his, so it will be great if Emerson keeps these great eating habits up!

And, much to my surprise, while I was feeding Emerson her baby food...I felt something hard in her mouth...and sure enough it's her first little toOth! I never would have known she was teething...she has not been the slightest bit fussy, feverish, or drooly!
I consider myself LUckY...very, very lucky...

How old is she now? I've recently tried giving Tilley baby food, and she doesn't quite know what to think. She eventually gags it down, but doesn't quite "go in for the kill" when I do the "airplane" with the spoonfull of food to her mouth. Hopefully it get's better...

Oh, I'm jealous! Sam eats like a bird, too. And he's teething and DROOLING EVERYWHERE! I feel like I need to permanently attach a bib to him.

Emerson is such a cutie! Congrats on an awesome 1st feeding!

I love it when they start eating messy foods. They make for great pictures! She is such a pretty little girl and what a blessing to be happy during teething! What a little angel!

yeah, i agree with tanya...i can't believe she's such an oinker! good for her! hopefully she grows out of it by age 20 so her mom won't tell her that she just needs to lose her baby fat and then she'll be skinny...oh whoops, that was me!

i can't believe she ate all that. i'm having a hard time getting avery to get well these days. and i'm so jealous about the no fuss baby when teething. i could use one of those!

You are very lucky at how well she tolerates teething. Ryan stops sleeping whenever he gets teeth and it throws everything else in our days off. I hope she keeps eating that much food-she will chunk up in no time! Your kids are darling.
