First Foods and Teething

Well, its official, London is now eating solids (they are more like mush, so I'm not sure why they are called solids haha). We started with rice cereal then moved to sweet potatoes. He LOVED it! He kept trying to grab the bowl and spoon. Only one week after starting, he is eating 4 tablespoons of cereal and half a jar of baby food. He LOVES them. He has really gotten the hang of eating off a spoon. Yesterday he was sitting in my lap while I was eating and every time I would bring the fork to my mouth he opened his mouth and tried to get his mouth over to the fork. It was sooooooo funny :) We are starting squash tonight :)

London is also teething. I'm not sure if I have mentioned it before now but he has been teething on and off for a few weeks now. Just the other day his gums were red and swollen so I felt for sure a tooth was going to pop through, but by the next day it had gone back down and is just red now. Hopefully they will pop through soon. He has been pretty miserable recently. Thank goodness for teething tablets and baby orajel Here he is chewing on his new best friend, the frozen teething ring.

He has even found a few things on his play mat to chew on.
