Sweet Potatoes

After a few days of a baby whose schedule was out of whack, yesterday was a DREAM! She was happy during her awake time--playing, "talking", reading books, listening to music, rolling over...
She was just happily awake and went to sleep without fussing or struggle.  It was a really peaceful, enjoyable day after a couple days where she wasn't on her schedule due to holiday stuff and running around.

Here's a typical day for Lily regarding sleeping and eating:

7:30am--wake up, bottle
9:00am--ready for nap
11:30am--wake up, bottle
1:30pm--ready for nap
4:00pm--wake up, bottle
7:15pm--up from catnap
 In bed between 8:30pm-9:00pm

I've been giving her rice cereal once a day in addition to her bottles.  She doesn't love it.
But, she's seemed hungry still, at times, despite her 8ounce bottles, so I knew it was time to add some food.

How can this baby girl already be old enough to be eating food? Sigh.

I'm going to be making her baby food which is new for me since I didn't do that with Andrew. I'm excited about it actually!  However, I had picked up one Gerber stage 1 package  for when she was ready to start.

Last night we gave her sweet potatoes for the first time! 

Yep, she loved them!


  1. Love this!!! :) You have inspired me to start one about the little guy! :) I can not believe she eats 8oz bottles too! Only because she is soooo petite where in the world does she put it all?

  2. I wish someone had told me about the plastic feeding bibs. I had to discover them at Target after staining many, many bibs!

    She's adorable. The twins' first food was also sweet potatoes, which they love.
