Adventures in Cereal

The boys have been extra restless this week...and extra hungry. They were eating more ounces even more frequently and after a little google research, I decided to call and ask my doctor about it. Turns out they are eating over the recommended amout of milk for a 6-8 month old and they are only four months. The worst part is - they still aren't satisfied.

So after talking to the nurse, she suggested we go ahead and start cereal.


They both reacted the same way: it didn't take them long to figure out what to do with it and then I couldn't shovel it in fast enough for them. They are going to fit right in with the Grigsby men!
Eli decided about half way through that it was too slow and frustrating to eat from a spoon. He was quite relieved to be back in daddy's arms with a bottle. You can't really tell, but he's giving me his trademark sideways glare here, showing his disdain for the pain and suffering I just put him through.
Landon just scarfed it all down and then had a bottle to wash it down. These boys are going to be huge!

unbelievable how *grown-up* they seem....but thinking Eli isn't especially happy about this change....he is hysterical....
Landon is just a plug....
loved the post Amy and I hope the change will give you more rest and more time to refuel for the next feeding...
love you,
mom

It's time to buy stock in baby food! I hope feeding them cereal will help keep them filled up longer. They are too cute!

Landon is so funny in that video. He wasn't paying attention to the food he was just staring at the camera. Too cute Amy!
