Six month birthday celebration

Last weekend also marked LittleTiger's six month birthday. It was the day that we had been looking forward to for a long time since we had decided that this would be the day when we would feed him solids for the first time. We were especially looking forward to it because we had assumed that he would start sleeping though the night from that point on (which ofcourse still hasn't happened..but more on that later).

As I noted in an earlier post, we couldn't wait till the six month mark and decided to have his Annaprashan about 2 weeks ago. Since then we had been feeding him some rice & oat cereal mixed with breastmilk. So this weekend, we decided to take it a step further and feed him veggies & fruit for the first time. I made some sweet potato and some applesauce for his first "real" food. The first spoonful was fed by Dadiji.
Though he seemed a little unsure at first, it turned out that he really liked it.

check out his outfit - the yellow dhoti-kurta. This one says "Makhan Chor" on the front!

I'm glad that he has been so open to trying new foods so far. Nothing is more satisfying than to see your baby eat well. Touch wood!
