Natalie is getting close to that magical 6 month mark, and despite my telling everyone that we weren’t going to start solids until after the Christmas trip, I’ve gone ahead and done it anyways.
The girl is ready! It’s quite different this time around though, because Lauren really wasn’t interested in food at all until she hit about 9 months. At that age she went straight to finger foods. Natalie looks like she’d rather do that too, but she’s just too little yet, so we’re starting off with rice cereal and pear puree.
Messy, but fun! She seems fine with the flavors and hopefully it will all go smoothly. I’m very much a ‘take it as it comes’ kind of Mum, so am applying no pressure to the situation, she’ll advance in her own time.
It’s amazing how quickly time is passing. I can hardly believe that it was almost 6 months ago she arrived – so much has changed since then, and while life is still in a state of semi-chaos, we’re working our way towards a regular pattern to the day.
In other news, I’m on track to finish Mocha Nihilism in a couple days time which makes me feel so fantastic. It’s been way too long since I finished anything longer than a short story!
I’m very much looking forward to some down time in the coming weeks, looking forward to the return of the sun as well (it’s meant to come back for Christmas!). Things are looking good folks, looking good indeed.
