I’ve had a hard time writing for my blog lately.  I have tons of things to write about, but I have had zero time to sit at a computer and type.  C’est la vie!  I do my best! The Wild Child is, occasionally, walking unaided and he is just a few days shy of 10 … Continue reading »

Blueberry MESS

Making blueberry puree sounded like a good idea….. My Wild Child loves just about any fruit you put under his nose.

Solid Start

We started solids today! At 6 months and 16 lbs 9 oz, I figured our little man could at least have his first taste of food. Lately, he’s been watching every thing I eat or drink and even trying to reach out for it! Why wait? I decided to wait 6 months before starting solids … Continue reading »
