Rice Cereal!

 I wanted to hold off on the rice cereal as long as possible. Reason #1: our pediatrician suggested that we hold off on solids until Easton was 6mo old. Reason #2: I absolutely want to keep him dependent on me as long as possible...his only source of nutrition was coming from me for the first 5 and a half months of his life, and I didn't want to give that up. But, my darling little guy was showing all the signs of readiness to eat a lil something other than "mama's milk."

 So, last week, we slapped a bib on our little guy and gave him the world's best rice cereal. He loved it! He was so ready to eat.  This little monster ate like a champ. He ate like he had been eating rice cereal off of a spoon his whole baby life.

The best part about feeding Easton rice cereal isssss....the cereal helped him SLEEP!! He slept through the night every night for a week. I'm talking, 8.5-9.5 hours EVERY night! Maybe the two aren't connected...but it's been amazing whether they are or not. Mama needed some good sleep :)
