First Baby Food! Carrots!

So at Quinn's 4 month doc visit, he got the go ahead to start baby food. He weighed in at 17lbs 12oz and 24.5 inches long. So that puts him at the 90th percentile for weight and the 50th percentile for height. He's a buddah baby, for sure. The doc said we could skip the rice cereal since they're effectively empty calories at this stage for him, and move on to fruits and veggies. So we started him on carrots (thanks to J & C!) and he's moved on to peas this week. I sort of expected a more negative reaction to both, but he seems to be pretty into them. It takes him a little while to get up the steam, but once he gets going, he'll start complaining if you don't get it to him fast enough! Next week: sweet potatoes.
