Every time we pick up Olive these days we feel our backs slowly breaking. This kid, she be gaining weight STEADILY. Which is great.

Things that weigh just as much as Olive:

1) A bag of bricks

2) A cubic yard of wet cement

3) An apartment

She’s currently rounding out her first week of solid foods. We were going to wait until she was 6 months old but we instead made it to 5.5 months. Ya see, we’d be drinking things and eating things and she’d start yelling and reaching for whatever it was. She totally let us know she was ready. The first time she ate rice cereal she ate it like she had been eating it her entire life.

    We caved early for hannah too…like 5-5.5 months. She was just ready and loves EVERYTHING. Fun fact–the AAP used to recommend waiting to give high allergen foods until over a year (or two). NOW , they are saying–it’s better to introduce it in the first 4-6 months! More or less, they don’t know what F causes so many food allergies but they know that they increased in the past 10 years since recommending parents wait to give them to their kids until later. So give her lots of variety and unless you have severe allergies in your family..don’t hold back!

    I hear you! My hip flexors and knees are giving out, and I’m convinced it’s because of Sam.

    Erin, great information! She sucked on a lime wedge yesterday, haha and I gave her the insides of blueberries this afternoon.

    Leah, proud mamas of chunks :)
