We are trying actual baby food now. I can't believe it, but he is ready and I think he enjoys it. I am going to try to make my own baby food, but so far I have given him store-bought food. I will make the apples, bananas, avocado, etc. -- the easy stuff. We started him on sweet potatoes. He liked it, but didn't love it. He eats about a tablespoon a night so far. He will eat more as he gets older. Nate is also feeding him rice cereal in the morning. I think the sweet potatoes were a success.

Then we tried pears tonight for the first time in his new high chair that we got yesterday. He LOVED the pears. He especially loved the pears when I played airplane with him. He thinks it's hilarious.
I also bought him a new toy. Now that he is semi-sitting up by himself and always hitting things in front of him, I bought him this light-up piano thing that whenever he hits the keys a song plays and lights up. He loves this toy and encourages him to sit up longer. It also keeps him entertained.
