Sweet Child of Mine
















Well that baby of mine slept the whole night through, right until 7 am when Monkey started yelling for me to wipe his bottom. I guess I wasn't the only one being disturbed by our bed-sharing. The temptation to midnight-nurse must have just been too great for him while in such close proximity to the milk bar.














He is starting to take a bit of solid food from me now. He eats cheerios or rice crackers on his own (if his sister will let him!) and will eat a few teaspoons of certain veggies at a time. I just had to keep trying I guess. He will not eat the baby cereal. I wouldn't bother with it at all, but it is fortified with iron that he needs now. I guess I will have to keep trying or find another source of iron for him.














Zed is a goer. He just can't wait to get up and play with those big sibs of his. He can get around the floor pretty quick and is really enjoying bouncing in the exersaucer we got second-hand. He can get bouncing pretty hard and he just screeches with joy.
He adores getting his photo taken, (how can you tell he is my child?) he smiles as soon as he sees that flash go off. Of course, if the camera is out, big sister Girly has to be in the shot too!














His big brothers and sister are amazed with him and smother him with kisses and raspberries. How blessed can one family be?!

  1. gorgeous shots - my baby girl refused to eat the cereal either - not one bite - I had to make her real food by the time she was 9 months old b/c she wouldn't eat any baby food - nothing - only breast milk for the first nine months!

  8. He's SO cute! It's so much fun to see him alongside Sadie since they're only hours apart!

    She hated rice cereal, hated oatmeal. She likes multigrain now, but only if it's thick, only if I mix fruit with it, and only if we both have a spoon. Why are these September babes so opinionated?

  14. I love the bathtub pic! I look forward to sibling pics!

    Good job, Z on the sleeping!! And good job Mommy for making it happen :)

    Does Z like banana? I found if I smushed the banana and had mostly banana with a bit of the oatmeal/cereal than the iron source could be disguised. Pureed beans could be another iron source. Hang in there :) Soon you won't be able to feed him enough!

  21. Dried apricots were a hit with my kids - I soaked and then boiled them in just a little water until they were soft, then pureed them. And if he just likes big kid food, why not use the cereal in some little muffins just for him?

    He's stunning, btw, it must be so hard for you to resist slapping him between some wonder bread and just munching him right up!
