Avocado Time

Coen had his first bite of food at four months. We didn’t go the traditional text book route of feeding him cereal. We chose to feed him avocado for his first bite. Jay did a bunch of research on what to feed Coen, he was convinced that it was the best way to go. I definitely was on board so that we can encourage him to eat healthy right from the start. Plus, I figured it would be fine no matter what you pick for your child as long as its a healthy choice, since its recommended that you start adding foods at 4 – 6 months. Avocado has those healthy fats that help with brain development.

    During this week, we also added yogurt and carrots to his diet. Next week we will add banana as his first fruit.

    Coen’s Coming Home

    I’ve been absent from writing since it was time to have Coen! We had him on October 25th weighing in at a huge 9lbs 14oz and he was 21 inches long. It already feels like he’s been a part of our family forever now. The girls love him and we are so lucky he is happy and healthy.
