cereal time!

peanut had gotten out of her good sleeping habbits, and we couldn't figure out what was going on.  she didn't seem to be bothered by her teeth, or her tummy, so we decided that maybe she wasn't getting full enough before bedtime.  if i would nurse her several times through the night, she would be fine.  so she got her first taste of cereal this week!  we started out with a little in a bottle at night mixed with breastmilk one night, and formula the next.  here we are in our jammers with the first cereal bottle!
she started doing better, and after asking around, i decided to quit giving her a bottle, and start offering her the spoon.  we did this on wednesday, and she did great!
she obviously kept wanting more, and was of course really messy.
she was too cute... 
we had to keep holding her back because she would go after the spoon!
now we've worked up to cereal twice a day, and still breastfeeding every 3 hours during the day.  and the last 2 nights have been full of sleep!  woohoo!  =)

Feeding that sweet girl cereal in her carseat is not an easy task! :) BUT we loved making a mess!!!
