Meat and Potatoes!
Well, it looks like Mitchell will not have to wait any longer to try out solid foods! His doctor feels like he is ready to start taking in more than just formula. We are starting him out slowly on cereal for two weeks and then going to try out one vegetable a week. We are waiting at least a week in between veggies to make sure he doesn't have an allergic reaction to anything. We are keeping our fingers crossed that he won't show signs of allergies once he starts eating solids.
Mitchell has also officially broken the bottom gum line with teeth. When he lets us look under his tongue (a difficult feat), we can see his white tooth sticking through! The doctor assured us that it wouldn't be long before he'd be wanting meat and potatoes because he's a growing boy!!!
This was Mitchell's first visit with his new friends! Will Zuber and Evylee & Kenzlee Terry are going to be Mitchell's buddies...when he's old enough to sit up and play!
The Bumbo Seat!
We have discovered that Mitchell loves sitting up and seeing the world from a "big boy" point of view. His new Bumbo seat has quickly become one of his favorite things to do. He loves watching and listening to us talk to him while he's sitting up just like us!
Brad and I have been married a little over eight years. He works for TVA and I am a teacher. We have recently had a baby boy who we named Mitchell. Right now we are excited about where our lives are headed and we are working to be the best parents we can be. God has truly blessed us with everything that we have!
