Lydia is five months old tomorrow and the days, weeks, and months continue to fly. She's reached the big event of starting "solid" foods this past week. What a messy happening given the relatively small amounts of milk and seemingly harmless rice cereal flakes! She made some confused faces at the beginning, but now just a couple of days later she opens her mouth like a champ and is quickly frustrated if she doesn't think you're re-filling the spoon fast enough. Joshua was so excited that Lydia could finally eat "real food" and loved helping me make the baby cereal. (Here are some pictures from her first cereal feeding.)
Finger Licking Good!
Nothing much is new with James and I, we're just trying to get ready for a week-long trip that begins on Friday and takes us back to see both sides of the family the following week, ending with the wedding of James' brother Justin (Joshua is the ringbearer).
