A BiG night at our house

1 Peter 2:2
Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.

Tonight was Jenna's first "real" food. Bethany has been excited all day! She couldn't wait for it to "get dark", so she could feed Jenna. I am so thankful that she has so much interest and enthusiasm with Jenna.
It has become weary getting up every night once or twice. I gave in and decided I would see if rice cereal helped both of us.
Jenna didn't know what to do with it. She may have gotten a tablespoon down, maybe. Bethany was able to feed her a couple spoons. Joe sneezed and scared her. After that she was done. She screamed and cried. Joseph had to have turn too. By that time, I don't think she ate anything. He was happy about it though. I am not sure if I will start feeding it to her every night. She didn't seem to be ready. If I get a great nights sleep, I'll change my mind!

Just this past week, Jenna has started grabbing things and putting them in her mouth. She loves this toy. It was Bethany's first favorite toy too.

I had to get up at 4am, which is better! I may try again. I wish she was just cold, but I don't think that was it. I'll let you know what happens!!
