Time for solids already!  Luca started on solids about a month ago and it has been so much fun.  Making it, serving it, seeing what his reaction will be and watching him get so very excited.  He LOVES eating!  It's become a group event here at the house.  As of right now we're doing rice cereal (with a dash of cinnamon...woohoo) and straight fruits and veggies (see above carrots, a definite winner).  But we just got the green light on dairy foods too.  Wild.  I love looking up recipes and I can't wait to start blending foods together.  Any favorite first food recipes out there that you and your babies loved?

brooklyn weekend

Brooklyn through Instagram!  This past weekend our little family did get to make it down to Brooklyn and had a great time just poking around, stopping in some of our favorite little places (Brooklyn Larder...mmmm) and eating out.  But I think that I'm not craving living there right now as much as I thought.  Maybe I'm more country mouse than I first suspected.  I love the idea of things we need being right outside your door.  But I also love not having to worry about your neighbors next door and upstairs (especially when your baby is crying).  But all in all a great weekend of having some family time and seeing some people that we've been missing!
Thanks, Brooklyn!
