On Friday, I bought a high chair for Gemma.

In the past week or so I have also purchased baby cereal (oatmeal), a food steamer, bowls and spoons, a sippy cup, and one of these cool things that allow baby to teethe on a piece of fruit or vegetable.

I have found baby food recipes, and done endless searches on when and how to introduce solids to baby.

I have decided what her first food would be and then changed my mind and then changed it back again.

I have gone back and forth on whether or not she is ready, and to be honest...

I don't know.

According to pushy (well-meaning) family members I am absolutely starving her but to be honest, I know it can wait. I think  that it should wait. Even with all of the research (well, googling) in the world, I think I am going to have to follow my mommy instinct on this one. I have a feeling she is going to be alright whether we start now or wait a little later but deep down I just don't feel like either one of us is...


So for now...we wait.

In the meantime, all of this baby stuff makes for a pretty cute photo opp.




P.S. I am so OVER pink and brown. I swore that the high chair I bought would not be pink and brown but I found this high chair for only $40, and since it is good quality, the deal was to hard to pass up. Ay yi yi!
