First Food

Today was a huge milestone in our house. Today Gray finally got to try his first taste of solid food. It’s huge not just because he’s growing up but because after 8 months we get to try him on something other than just me. 3 months ago I didn’t know if I would make it to today being his only source of food. It’s a lot of pressure to put on yourself, and not having the ability to use formula as back up made it that much more stressful for me. But we made it. Tomorrow is when Gray should be 6 months old, and even though we cheated by a day, we made it to 6 months corrected and he finally started food.
Here’s a video of his first food. He really enjoyed it. It’s watery but that’s how it's supposed to be I guess, we’ll have to see how the rest of his oatmeal looks tomorrow. I made half a batch and got 8oz. Umm, that’s 16 meals for Mr G.

I’m so happy in today. It was everything I was waiting for.

Self-Control and Exhaustion

Self-control and exhaustion do not seem to mix.
I started back to work last week, full time, and Gray has been going through a growth spurt, I have not slept much at all. So my self-control for things like ketchup chips has gone out the window. I’ve gotten to the point that I don’t have the energy to have the fight with myself not to. I always say “tomorrow is a new day” but I seem to do the same things over and over.
I’m really hoping that after G starts solid food on Friday we’ll be able to sleep a bit more. That he’ll maybe sleep through the night better. I’m praying – please pray with me.

Sorry that the blog has been a bit quiet – We’ve been going through some stuff here, and I’m finally feeling like I have my mojo back.
I’m going to try and post more and get things updated.
