    Apple Banana Cookies with Gerber Cereal

    We’re now a few months into introducing Ella to solids, and I have to say – it has been so much fun to watch her eat new foods and learn about textures. It’s also fun because unlike her big sister, this kid just loves to eat – she will eat anything and everything. I have yet to find a food she won’t eat. She’ll eat purees, but she definitely prefers to do it all herself.

    Formula and the End of Babyhood

    Formula and the End of Babyhood

    This past weekend, we did something that was completely ordinary, but life changing at the same time.  We bought Abbie’s last container of formula. We’ve been using Target’s brand of formula since we started supplementing when I went back to work.  Now that Abbie’s eating well and nearing a year old, we’ve started to make the switch to whole milk in her bottles.  We’ve started with subbing an ounce of whole milk for formula this week, and will up it by an ounce every week until her bottles are completely whole milk.  The guideline is to wait until the age…

    Baby Talk: Introducing Solids

    Baby Talk: Introducing Solids

    Happy Tuesday everyone!  Today I’m linking up with Kristin for Baby Talk! As I’ve mentioned before, we started Abbie on solids right at 4 months. It’s on the early side, but I was having supply issues and we thought she could handle it, so we dove in. Now that she’s had them for about 3 months, she’s loving so many things…which you’ve probably seen if you follow me on instagram.  Apparently all I post lately is photos of my baby eating. (This was when we started at four months…I can see her thoughts…Mom, what the heck is this stuff?) When…
