The San Francisco Treat

Hayden had his first taste of some rice cereal last night. You can see the video here. I take solids as the milestone out of infanthood. Gone are the days of not so smelly poo. Soon we'll be carting around sippy cups and Cheerios everywhere we go. A daily chore will be scraping up bits of crusty food off the floor. Oh yeah, I guess that's Jessie's job. It's all a bit too much for me to take.

He sure is changing a lot these days. His hair is coming in nicely, aside from the bald spot on the back of his head. He has this one very long piece of hair on the top of his head. I tried to take a picture of it but it doesn't show up. We think it's his one piece of original hair that's still hangin' on.

He is starting to learn to sit. He can manage a sort of sit where he's basically folded in half and propped up with his hands. Perfect motivation for this posture are his toes which he will suck on.

His hands are becoming more selective. Today he was chewing on a soother. It fell out of his mouth and he managed to pick it up and put the corner back in his mouth. He also likes to grab Jessie's hair in big fistfuls and then rip it out. She loves it.

These are the small things that make our days now. I guess we're easy to please.
