Oskar's First Solid Food

Because he's almost six months, and because he still doesn't sleep through the night, and because he wants to nurse ALL THE TIME, we finally decided to introduce Oskar to his first solid food.  Avocados.  He did not love them.  But he did fine moving them around in his mouth, lunging for and gumming the spoon, drooling green, and gag-urgitating.  With about two mice-sized bites making it to his belly, I'd say this initial exploration into the world of solid foods was a resounding success.

At least he smiles a lot, anyway.

Kit Carson Park & Duck Feeding

Way back in September we went to feed the ducks at Kit Carson Park with our friends the Flamingos and the Wrenches (no, those are not their real names . . . duh). I posted a couple of these pictures before, but I finally got around to editing a whole bunch of them tonight. They are SO CUTE! I love these families and I love that our kids are such good buddies.  Good times, good times.
