Ernie's First Food

Today was a big day for Ern Dawg. He was about to try his first food, but first he needed to do some activities to work up a little appetite.

I've been wanting to take Ernie to a home improvement store for a while because he has such a strong interest with ceiling fans and lights. I don't think any of the fans were actually on which we thought was boring but we did like the lights.

He wasn't very scared of this stuff. I was proud.

He had his first non-breastmilk sustenance today: baby oatmeal mixed with breastmilk.

I thought he did pretty well. He was smacking his lips like he immediately knew how to chew. Big Ern has been needing to take this liquid iron supplement stuff that tastes a lot like chocolate flavored blood. It's super messy so we are excited for him to start getting his iron from food so that we can ditch the supplement.

I had some of my supplements as well.
