Solids

We had our 4 month appointment today and everything checked out perfect! Collier now weighs 15LB 7OZ and is 25.5" long. He got 5 shots and screaming levels were much lower than the first time, thankfully. The doctor told us to start him on solids, with rice cereal and a little applesauce. These need no further explanation.
Since the time that I went to register for our wedding registry at Williams-Sonoma and saw the Beaba Cookbook, I have always wanted to try and make my own baby food. So, I am going to try and make his food. I've read all about it and have done a ton of research (if you're interested wholesomebabyfood.com is awesome and full of info). I really want to do it because I think it will be fun plus it will save some money and a little added bonus is that it will be way better for him. I am not going to buy any special equipment, just my food processor and steamer which I already have. I did make his applesauce tonight and it was fun and really easy. More to come as we start with other fruits and vegi's. I can't wait!

TOTAL CHANGE OF SUBJECT: PRAYER REQUEST.
I am in need of prayer, I don't want to go into detail but would appreciate your prayers in regards to my job. Sorry for being vague but I need the prayers and details are few at this point. I have total faith that God is working his perfect plan for my life and am fully trusting in him. Getting from point A to point B sometimes is the hard part. I appreciate your prayers.


And now we gear up as we are only 3 days away from College Football kickoff!!!! Let the fun begin.

I can't believe he's already 4 months! He's such a cutie sitting up in his high chair. This baby food stage is so fun-good for you for making the food. you'll have to share some tips. I would have no idea where to start. Good luck w/your job-will be praying for your situation-it will all turn out just right I know!
