First Foods

This week we started Natalie on rice cereal. She looked so tiny in her high chair. She has yet to master the skill of eating with a spoon, yet seemed to enjoy the challenge. Since the day we brought her home from the hospital, she has been a difficult baby to feed. We could never understand if it was the bottle she didn't like or the formula or whatever else. Over the bast couple of weeks she has gotten better and takes her bottles like a champ. It was a surprise when she took so easily to the spoon. She is still having trouble with the whole swallow idea but she is getting there.
This next couple of weeks are going to be crazy with work and planning a couples shower for our friends Chris and Amy! I'm excited for the shower but ready for it to be over. I'm just hoping that the weather is nice that day (April 4th) since it is going to be outside. We all know how crazy the weather can be in the spring down south.

Also please pray for a sweet baby boy, Jonah, and his parents. He was born with a rare, genetic skin condition called "EB". Head over to their blog to read more about their story. They are an amazing couple still grieving from the loss of their first born, Gabe, in April 2008 and trying to cope with this. All the while praising God!!
