Cereal time!

It is so hard to know when you should really start to feed your baby infant cereal but Titus is now 4.5 months old and has shown so much interest in food.  It seemed like every time he was watching us eat he would try to grab it and on time he did get a hold on my banana and put it right to his mouth.  It was very cute.   I know with breast fed babies they say to wait until 6 months and I am not in a hurry but we have gone ahead and given Titus some baby cereal.  We have done it a couple times.   The first time he grabbed the spoon and had more fun with the spoon but was putting the spoon to his mouth, smarty pants!  His sister did the exact same thing!  The next time he was such a messy boy but seemed to really enjoy eating it.  I did notice that the day after he ate he did not poop and then the following day had several!  So his little system has to figure it all out!  

A couple pictures to showcase little man:

This looks yummy! 

My thumb tastes good now.  :) 

As you can see he wanted to be a big helper and feed himself.

Those are adorable pics!! I miss those days :)

Bella had a full mouth of teeth by 8 months, so she was eating table food by 4-5 months too. It was amazing how much she enjoyed eating!!

As what they always say, babies have their own pace that must be respected and followed. Your adorably cute little one shows that he's ready for solids! :) You're doing so right in taking advantage of his growing curiosity with food. Babies follow their instincts and when this is followed through by us parents, they learn to trust their instincts more and in general themselves.

Mine also started showing interest on food as early as 4 months. So we gave her cereals as early as 4 something months and at the beginning she's was really eager but then in the end, she didn't like the taste of cereal and lost interest... but she didn't lose interest with other food. She doesn't like baby food at all... so we went straight to solids like small bites of fruits, etc :)

Gosh, I want to squeeze your little one and sniff him till I lose my breath! LOL

I so love babies! and mine has already left babyhood agh.

So cute! This is my first baby and we started cereal around 4 months too. She just spit it out, but we tried on and off. She is now 8 months old and is eating so many different things. She is still a messy eater. Ha ha! :)

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
