Who Loves Sweet Potatoes? (pics)

finn does! (i happen to think they're vile.)

i mixed some in with his rice cereal and he *loved* it. i love feeding him food, it's so fun. it made me a little sad though, he's growing up so fast. not only did he have sweet potatoes today, i also packed away his swing and all his 3-6 month clothes. oh, and we installed his big boy car seat.

sad day for mommy.

watching me pretend to eat them. doesn't he look like such a big boy in his high chair?


mmm...


can't resist stuffing his fingers in his mouth...


so delish!






washing it all down-

What a big boy you are .finn!!!! Isn't it just the saddest thing to pack away things they've outgrown?
Adriana is still in 18 mos, tho about a month ago I was going to pack them away, because they started getting too small. Well now she fits in them just fine, with a little extra room. She's getting taller now, I was thrilled!

whyd you pack his swing away already? Trace still uses his sometimes when he is fussy. we are also still using his infant car seat, cause isnt it the safest to keep them in those as long as possible?

im glad he liked the sweet potatoes! he is a cutie.

he rarely uses his swing and his stuff is taking over, so when i put the highchair together i decided the swing had to go. i really only used the swing to put him in front of sesame street when i needed a quick shower, he really likes sitting in his stroller though so that'll work just as well. he also loves sitting in his new highchair.

i've never heard that the infant seats are safer than a convertible. he was getting too big for his bucket seat though, even when i pulled the straps out all the way i still had to struggle to get his arms in, he was also getting pretty close to outgrowing it height-wise. his new seat is one of the safest out there (the britax marathon), it's still rear-facing (of course) so i'm sure it's just as safe as the bucket.

thanks for the comments everyone!

lol, nope still rear-facing. i've heard it's safest to keep them rear-facing for as long as possible, not just up to 1 year and 20 pounds, so i think i'm going to keep him that way until he exceeds the rf weight limit for his seat (i think it's 33 pounds). then it's forward-facing for up to 65 lbs, so i'm hoping we'll get many years of use out of this seat.

he really is a very happy baby. unfortunately his shots on wednesday made him pretty darn crabby but he seems much better today so i'm hoping he'll be completely back to normal by tomorrow.

yeah, rear facing is always safest. i know a few people that kept their babies rear facing until 18 months or later.
