wanted to check in and let everyone know how our move is going...
thursday started out rough.
i woke up with an AWFUL sore throat and elliot didn't let us sleep much.
we got up early to finish packing stuff up and then the movers ended up being an hour late.
elliot was wonderful in the car. i managed to schedule so that we nursed, then hopped in the car and he passed out for 2 1/2 hours. we woke him up when we stopped for lunch - changed him, nursed him, entertained him.
he also fell in love with a sock monkey.
so naturally, we purchased it for him.
he didn't cry at all.
now we are in oklahoma visiting ryan's brother and his family for a few days.
two nights ago elliot woke up every two hours to nurse...last night he gave me a 5 hour stretch. praise jesus.
he also didn't go to bed until 11pm.........
el is 4 1/2 months old and has taken immense interest in food.
he stares at it and starts drooling and tries to grab it if it's close enough to him.
i have let him taste things - mostly bananas or other fruits.
but last night we were at a pizza place before the football game and i let him taste a little piece of a garlic roll and he tried to eat it and then was hysterical when i pulled it away.
sooo, is he ready?
i was planning on doing mostly baby led weaning so letting him eat it would have been fine but this mama doesn't want him to grow up so fast :(
