Sweet potato explosion aka Playdate!

Benjamin had his friends Emma, Aiden and Audrey from school over this afternoon for a play date. We had McDonald's happy meals and the kiddos played in the backyard. Favorites were the horsie swing, the sandbox, the rebounder and the tee ball stand.

While the older ones played my friend Darcie and I visited and I prepared to feed Hacob his sweet potatoes for lunch. Unfortunately, when I went to shake up his jar of food, I forgot that I had already shaken and loosened/unscrewed the top about 20 min earlier when everyone else was eating lunch. Sweet potatoes flew EVERYWHERE within about a 10 foot radius as I shook the jar and the lid flew off!!! Darcie and I laughed and laughed and I think even Jacob (who had also gotten flying food on him) was more amused than shocked as he watched us two grown ups almost pee our pants ;)

6 months!

Jacob is 6 months old today! He is an exceptionally happy baby, always ready to share a smile. He makes noises to get your attention and then smiles with his whole body because he's so excited that you looked over at him. He LOVES his food, and makes "mmmmmmm" sound with every bite. It's hilarious. He eats homemade foods and organic store bought baby foods. I have puréed for him: sweet potato, carrots, avocado, mango, banana, apple, pear, prunes. He also eats rice, oatmeal and multigrain cereals, blueberry, raspberry, squash, green beans, peas, and more.

He sleeps through the night still and nurses 4 times/day. He does a funny thing when nursing ... His free arm he swings hard back and forth, sometimes hitting me, sometimes catching his fingers in my mouth. He keeps his fingers there and seems to like hearing me say "wawawawa" :)
