All we are give peas a chance

Right after Nick's 4 month check up, we tried Nick on solid food starting with rice cereal. But Nick just wasn't ready for solid food yet, so we just stopped for a while. A few weeks ago Nick became enthralled watching anyone eat. We decided it was time to try again, and Nick was ready! He was woofing down rice cereal like he was in the hot dog eating contest on Coney Island.

So now we are beginning to try other foods that mommy has cooked and pureed for him. Of course the suspense is torture because the Dr. says you need to wait 3 to 5 days after each new food is introduced to isolate allergic reactions if they occur. So this Monday while we were at Deenie's for dinner with Nick's great Aunt Betty, Nick tried peas. He liked them OK but not as much as cereal. He ate plain peas again on Tuesday and then last night he had a pea and rice cereal swirl.

Today I am making him apple sauce with yummy gala apples. Hopefully I can put a list on the blog somewhere of all the foods he tries and his first reactions. Nick is almost as excited about eating as Mommy and Aunt Gaines are about cooking for him!

    Hi Nick: Great to hear that you enjoy rice cereal. So now you are trying peas. So far I like everything you have tried. What are you going to try next? We hope to see you at the Family Reunion on Saturday. We also have a surprise for you when you arrive in Paragould, AR. Will this be your first time you have traveled outside the State of Alabama? Have a safe trip. Love ya: Grandpa

    Hi Nick: It was great to see you at the Family Reunion on the 11th of June. You definitely met a lot of your relatives you didn't know you had. And, this was the first time you have traveled outside the State of Alabama. You can now chalk up Mississippi, Tennessee, and Arkansas as States you have visited. Next year you will be able to play in the kiddies' pool when you attend the Reunion. You are definitely a wonderful addition to the Reunion. And, you were great at the restaurant and the pick'n and a grin'n that night. I believe you really enjoyed the Country & Western music. Love ya: Grandpa
