Starting Solids

Those solids sneak up on you, don't they?!  I received an email letting me know it was time to start last month and I about yelled at the computer screen.  There was no way my little baby was old enough for solids!  I pushed it off another month, and started it just before she turned 5 months (which is officially today :) ).  We skipped cereal/oatmeal just like with Charlie.  Since there is no nutritional value, I feel like there is no need to start there.  We started with pears, just like big sissy.  And just like Charlie, solid foods is the worst thing possible according to Miss Leni.

So far, we've tried pears, sweet potatoes, and apples.  All thumbs down and I'm pretty sure barely any has been swallowed.  It just clicked with Charlie one day after weeks of trying, so I'm sure it will be the same thing with Leni!

And just for Friday fun, I have a little comparison of the two girls for you:

Unfortunately, I couldn't get a quick snap in before Leni started crying, but love taking photos of Leni with Charlie's handed-down clothes.  Same lovable and VERY kissable cheeks :)

Happy Friday!

We skipped rice cereal too and I plan to do the same with baby 2. And I can't wait to do similar pictures of baby boy 2 in Aiden's clothes. I'm sure it brings back so many memories! Your girls are adorable and I'm so glad you're blogging again! XO
