Growing Up

video

I know starting cereal really isn't that big of a deal, but I have a little top 5 list of why I am just a little bit sad that he started eating solid food on Sunday, 9/23/07.

5. Feeding milk only has a certain simplicity, especially nursing, he is easy to take places and it requires only light packing. Usually all I have to take is a diaper, wipes and a pacifier.

4. Suddenly I am not the only one that can feed him. It is nice to be able to share this part of Logan's life with others, particularly Josh, but it was kind of special that he needed me.

3. Josh said I couldn't say this real reason, but I'll just say we will be going through a lot more wipes :(

2. I am now faced with what foods do I feed him? Books say all different things, and I want to start him out on the right foot, but how do I do that? I want him to eat healthy and have good habits, and it starts young. I didn't have to worry about that before.

And the number one reason is . . .

1. He is growing up too fast! I have been around kids long enough to know they grow fast, but it is more obvious with my own little one. He is constantly changing and becoming more and more independent, and while I am excited part of me loves taking care of every need.

He is so adorable. I hear you on the growing up too fast. Just wait until they start pre-school! :) That smile at the end was priceless.

Sarah loved your little movie (and I did too). She kept saying, "Mommy, baby Logan's eating his mush! He's having fun!" I totally empathize with the growing up blues. The thing that matters is that you love Logan and that you're a great mother. I'm sure he knows how hard you're trying to give him what's best.

Oh, its a milestone! I remember feeling that way with Maggie, too. Feeding food takes so much longer--nursing is just so much simpler. And now, I've started giving Maggie cows milk this week. And I only nurse her in the morning and thats about to end...oh! babies grow up! CRUEL WORLD!

That's the first time I have seen a kid eats his first cereal and actually laugh while eating!

I read your list of 5 reasons and thought to myself that I had those same exact feelings this week. Can I copy this post and put it on my blog? Lol I'd love any ideas/tips on how to go about this whole "I eat big people food now." We should talk soon! PS the video was adorable!
