Five months ago today I met the OTHER love of my LIFE!!

Jackson is 5 months and I cannot believe how quickly the time had gone.  Today is St. Patrick's Day and we decided to try our hand at cereal.  I figured since I am a SAHM for now I would make my son's food.  So on Saturday I bought a dedicated baby food coffee grinder and a two tier steamer at Kohls, I had a coupon and gift certificate of course! 

I ground up Quinoa ( and cooked it on the stove and then I put it in the fridge for safe keeping.  Quinoa among other things is high in fiber and protein, gluten free and therefore easier to digest than regular baby rice cereal.  Bright and early Jackson awoke and I gave his a bottle and then I set up the kitchen table for his first feeding of cereal.  Here are some pictures of how it went!!

He seemed to enjoy the quinoa!


  1. Your new pic at the top is beyond precious!! Good idea about the quinoa. I'll have to remember that. The pic of him with the spoon made me LOL! He looks like he's not so sure about all this :)

  2. Where is your plastic bib from? Its adorable!

  3. Hi Dave and Amy, it is from Babies R Us, it is on clearance!!!

  4. Thank you for sharing your story. My wife and I have an omphalocele baby in the hospital now and are able to draw strength from stories like yours! You can see our little angel at Again, thank you for the inspiration!
