We started Elliot on solid food (well, mushy food) after Christmas. First we tried rice cereal, which he sometimes likes. This weekend I had planned on starting avocado, but I didn't get to the grocery store. So instead we tried strained peas.

Eating is loads of fun. At least if you don't have to clean up after yourself.

Elliot can also now sit up by himself. That is, he can stay seated if someone puts him in that position. Around New Years he was able to sit with a bit of support, then a week later he could sit if at least one hand was on the ground. And now he can wave both hands around, grab objects (preferably his socks) and stick them in his mouth.

Happy New Year!


Oh the weather outside is frightful
And my dear, you're so insightful
Although we've got problems with the drain
Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain!
