Hot 'lanta and Rice Cereal

Hum, what do those two things have in common -- not much except that while I was in Atlanta for Caroline's wedding shower, David and Catherine Ellis had some quality Daddy daughter time with rice cereal included. We've been trying to start her on rice cereal....and believe me there has been a ton of research, question asking, etc. before we started the cereal. Her doctor said go for it, start getting her used to something besides liquid so she'll be ready to eat solids at 6 months, but there is that whole food allergy thing. However, after much reading and research, we've started the rice cereal and feel good about it. Just a few times a week we're 'feeding' it to her by spoon and then if she drinks a bottle we'll put a little in there. The first time was not so great, she cried and hated it, but we've done it two more times since then and its gone well. She's not 'eating' it but she's getting a feel for the taste and pushing it around in her mouth, so she's learning.

First time trying rice cereal...not so sure I like this Mom

Trying it again, much better this time

Saturday I headed to Atlanta for a wedding shower I helped host for sweet Caroline! Caroline and I have been great friends since our Camp McDowell summer staff days and I'm honored to be a part of her big day, October 31st in Charlotte. Since she's moved around much of her life, we thought Atlanta would be a good meeting place for those that love her. She had a great turn out and it was wonderful to see her....we can't wait for her and Matt to marry!

Love this girl!

We had a great church service this morning and got to catch up with a lot of folks since we've been out of town so much this summer. Catherine Ellis is starting to hold her bottle a little...

Something else she is also learning to do is grab her feet -- she's learning new tricks everyday!

Holding my feet!

Another great weekend with great friends! We're excited about this next week because it's a short work week and we head to the beach for 5 days! Until our next update, have a great week....

Have a great week!
