Update

We started feeding Nate rice ceral last week and he likes it pretty well. He is so impatient while eating it though! He hates that it takes so long for us to get another spoonful of food into his mouth. When he is breastfeeding or eating from a bottle there is a constant flow of food, so he does not understand why there is a pause when eating now. Since monday i have been feeding him carrots, which he seems to like a lot! I went and bought a bumbo yesterday for him to sit in when he eats and plays, but he does not like it! At first i thought he did when he was playing because he was all smiles, but a few minutes later that was not the case. He kept trying to push himself out of it! He is just always on the go and does not like to sit for more than a minute. I am afraid he will never learn how to sit because he much rather be rolling around or trying to crawl. I have a feeling he will be crawling before he learns how to sit! The bumbo was also a different color then what i thought and skyler freaked out because it was purple (on the box it says the actual color is green) so he said i have to return it and get a different color. I think i am just going to return it and buy a regular high chair. The bumbo is a great idea and i think i would love it if i had a baby that was not so active. Nate is to squirmy for something like that. I was going to buy the tray that goes with it so i could keep him locked in it while i feed him, but i heard that they are pretty easy to kick off and nate has super strong legs so i know that would not last long


First time eating with a spoon

Ha Ha that is so funny that he hates the bumbo! I love that you can totally tell he is trying his hardest to get out of it! Hopefully he likes sitting in a high chair better or you might have a serious problem!!

That cracks me up about the color, leave it to Skyler to freak out about his boy being in a purple bumbo! I can see that Nate would have a hard time sitting still long enough to eat, even in a high chair, but at least you can trap him in a high chair. As smart as Nate is, I am sure he will figure out how to get out of the bumbo in no time! Good luck! Cute pictures though!

Good luck with an active baby! I had 2 of them and they keep you on your toes constantly. Malakai was walking by 8 months and maddux 9. I bet nate will be the same. hey at least it will keep you in shape!!

Jake had to get use to the bumbo but now he loves it! Maybe it just takes a while. I wish Jake ate babyfood as well as Nate, he still isn't sure about it, he is getting better though! Nate is a cutie pie!

Hey are you coming up for Kimmy's shower? You totally should, you could stay with me if you need a place to crash!

I think the purple is very flattering...okay I would probably take it back too. Oh btw this is Camie, I am Skylers cousin. Hope you don't mind that I check in on your little family.

Weber is where jessie went to school, its not too far. It would be fun to go to a game, Maybe my family could all come. I would love to have you stay here with us!! We have an air mattress and you could use Jake's pack n play if you want so you don't have to bring yours up!
