6 Months

In the name of all things tender! I thought it would be cute if I taught Porter how to give kisses, and cute it is. What I hadn’t intended was the amount of slobber that would end up on my nose or in my mouth, hmm. We were able to catch a couple of kisses on film, and it’s pretty cute if I do say so myself.

According to just about everyone, when a baby is 6 months old they should be introduced to solid foods. I thought Porter would start with sweet potatoes, but when I tried that he gave such an adverse reaction that I thought I should start with something a little more tame. Otherwise I feared that I may be nursing him forever. That was a serious moment of panic in my mind, but when I gave him some rice cereal with breast milk things went a lot smoother, phew. I’d say it was a success.

He’s also teething, which leads to some basic gnawing on anything he can get his gums on.

That’s my tender boy!
