Little Junior has reached the magical 6 month mark - we started on mushy rice cereal last week with some success. He pulled a face when he first tried some. I don't blame him, I had a little taste and it was kind of like cardboard which had been soaking in water for a couple of hours. Bleugh.

So this week I'm going to try some pureed carrot, hopefully it'll go down well and he won't be wearing too much of it!

In other news, my mother in law is in town for a month - 3 weeks down and 1 to go. It's been pretty good actually, not as horrendous as some people might think. Still, it will be nice to get back into a bit more of a routine, especially when you're trying to introduce solids.

The wonderful nights of "sleeping through" that Junior has been doing so well since his birth are well and truly over. He woke twice last night, bawling his little heart out. It's hard to tell if he's hungry, or bored or what. Then again, it might be the solids, if you count one teaspoon of the stuff as enough to keep him awake. I'm not sure what to do about it, so I've just been feeding him back to sleep, which apparently is a big no-no if you listen to all the "expert" advice. Ah well.

Finally we've booked our flights for our trip to Ireland in July. Time to start planning that one now. Good Lord.
