My First Post

So... I've been thinking about starting a blog for a while. I'm horrible at keeping a journal and hope this will take the place of one. I hope to track my children's milestones and maybe some of my personal accomplisments and be able to keep family and friends informed about what is going on in our lives.

So, with that as my goal, Corbin has had a few firsts lately. Last Friday he ate his first solid food, rice cereal, and loved it! I was going to wait till he was 6 months old to introduce solids, but he's been so interested in what we are eating or drinking that I thought I'd start him early. I made a bunch of baby food on Monday (peas, apples and sweet potatoes) and froze it in ice cube trays. On Tuesday i gave him some sweet potatoes which he thought were great. Yesterday he got his first tooth, the bottom left one is just sticking up.

We just started going to our neighborhood pool this week and Jovi won't go in by herself, she is afraid of sharks in the pool. I told her that sharks only live in the ocean and swimming pools are 100% shark free, but the first day she would only put her feet on the first step. Yesterday though, she would go all the way in as long as she could hold on to me so I think we are making progress. I just have to make sure that we go to the pool at least a couple of times a week so she doesn't forget.

As a personal accomplishment, I finished sewing a new diaper bag out of an old sweater I had. I'll try and post some pictures.

Yea! I'm glad you have a blog! I don't have one...yet. I can't wait to learn more about your family though. That shark story was pretty funny! (this is Alice Demske)
