Mommy Help

We are well into feeding Brody solids and he is doing extremely well, but I do have a question... When we take the spoon out of his mouth to fill it with more food, he whines and/or screams. So my question is, do I hurry up and shove some more food into his mouth or do I wait for him to calm down before giving him the next bite?

I love to put my hands in my mouth!

Solid Food = SLEEP???

We have started Brody on solid foods and he is doing really well at eating from a spoon as long as I can control his arms and hands from getting into his mouth or the dish and what ever I am serving. He has only eaten rice cereal and peas. I am going to be making his baby food for a couple reasons...1) I know exactly what is going into his little body 2) I can choose to buy organic or frozen 3) it seems to be cheaper and 4) it's fun! I have the Babycook from Williams Sonoma and it works great! Here is my messy little guy after eating peas.
(Sorry for the blur- took this with my phone)

I have been seeing a trend with him eating solids...he sleeps 12 hours straight!!! I really hope I am not jinxing myself but I had stopped solids for about a week and he was waking up 2-3 times a night. Glad I have figured it out for my own selfish reason of sleeping! Off to make one more batch of peas and then we will start green beans next week.

We had a great time in CA. Brody was pretty good on the flight...I am probably a little more critical because I am always so worried about everyone else's experience around the little guy. He is so active, it ended up being a little challenging to keep him confined in a 3x3 space! Here are a few pics from his 1st plan ride. BTW he napped for 20 minutes going up and 2o minutes going down! The rest of the trip (2 hours) he was happy to be awake! Lucky us! ;)
This trip was a little different than the last few we have been on, for obvious reasons...but it was still extremely enjoyable and we had a nice time visiting with Gabe's side of the family.

Friday, we window shopped on Roberston and went to the Dodger game (Brody's 1st baseball game). He was soo good at the game. The first 5 times the crowd cheered Brody's face would change from happy to sad in slow-mo. It was the saddest, cutest thing! It scared him!!! He eventually warmed up to it and had fun. Everyone around was admiring his cuteness.

Saturday we headed to Malibu so Brody could go to the beach for his first time! We ate at Gladstone's since Gabe's dad had never been there, and it is right on the beach. We drove through the Pepperdine campus, which Gabe and I had not seen...BEAUTIFUL! And ended our night at Koi.
My delicious dinner of Kobe steak, since I don't do sushi.

Sunday did not go as planned, thanks to Gabe! ;) This should sum it up!
(A little scary at first, but turned out to be ok. While we were waiting for the EMT, we sure did see a motorcyclist run into a truck...good thing for helmets. We think he is ok too.)
We were able to do a small bit of shopping in Santa Monica - thanks for being a trooper! Love you babe!

Monday we headed home. On the flight home, one of the flight attendants really took to Brody and was kind enough to walk him up and down the aisles to entertain him for a little bit while mommy and daddy took a much needed break.

First Flight

We are leaving for California on Thursday and taking Brody-man! Any tips for flying with a 4 month old??? I am a little nervous and hoping he does well. We are excited about the trip. There will be lots of firsts for Brody and we are definitely looking forward to it!
