We delayed starting Caleb on solid foods until after we returned from our trip to SC, and so he was 7-1/2 months old before he had his first taste of anything from a spoon. It's been quite a battle! He's tried rice cereal, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, pears, applesauce, and bananas. So far, the only thing he's eaten more than a spoonful of is applesauce. The first picture is the "Before" pic from the first day. After I uploaded the pictures, I realized that he's wearing a different shirt in the "After" picture, so that must be from the second day! Oh well! It takes so long to upload pics on here that I'm not going to worry about it. You get the idea!
There were many people we would have liked to see during our visit to South Carolina, and we simply did not have time to see everyone. However, we were fortunate to be able to meet Lindsey for lunch. Joel was a big influence in her life when she was a teenager. He affectionately refers to her as "kiddo," and she calls him "adulto."
We are a little family of three (plus two animals- Ranger, the dog we love, and Jinx, the destructive cat we tolerate because Ranger likes to play with her). We are busy adjusting to life as three rather than just two and thanking God for the blessing of a baby. We are praying for His wisdom and grace to raise little Caleb to know and love Him!
