A day of firsts

Today is October 1 and today is the day Gabby turns 6 months old. And what does the 6-month mark means for breastfeeding mommies? It's when their baby first tries solid food! I'm trying to introduce solids to Gabby via baby-led weaning and this means getting messy. That's right! Because it's all about letting baby dictate just how much food he wants to try by letting him feed himself. And since he's still experimenting and exploring, it is bound to get messy.

Let me show you just how messy it was:


And a closer look...


Well, I didn't take a picture of our floor but just so you can imagine, the first 2 pieces of squash he was able to grasp was thrown. Very good baby, right? All in all, it was a success. We now know not to soften the squash too much and we'd have to place old newspapers on our floor tomorrow to catch the flying food.

Another first for today, but this time with Jack-Jack, is a visit to the dentist! He was very good and didn't make a fuss when the dentist brushed his teeth. I sure wish he would be like that when his teeth is brushed at home. We're going back after 2 weeks to see if the cavities that are already starting to form in his teeth have been minimized. Hopefully, he'd cooperate when it's brushing time.
