I would gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.

Uschi is almost 5 months. Almost. A few weeks ago her pediatrician told me that she probably would be ready for solids between now and 6 months. I started reading some books, last weekend Edward and I bought spoons and bowls. We hadn't even gotten rice cereal, the perennial favorite for starters. Yesterday my brother, Nat, was eating a big bowl of cereal. Uschi looked at it and started wailing (which is VERY atypical for her). She was so mad I didn't give her any cereal. So we had to go out and get the darn stuff, because like I said we didn't think she'd be ready for food this early. So today was the big day. Milk was not enough and Uschi let me know how inadequate it was. Anyway, I honestly thought that she would maybe be overwhelmed or change her mind about this whole new food thing. No, no. She got extremely angry in the evening and demanded another serving. I realize that there are those of you who think that I should have stuck with the typical one serving a day thing. But really, Uschi is certainly my boss and she would let me have it if I didn't give her the appropriate portions.

Love it! She's your boss. lol. So we have a crap ton of rice if you want some. We get 3 boxes a month with WIC. My son does not eat 3 boxes a month. Let me know if you want some!

Ha ha! Ethan loves baby food too. There are few things in the world he loves more. Paper and electrical cords come to mind. ;)
I love how much of a personality Uschi has already!
