    Nothing like eating to the beat to fill us up and put on weight! Amory gained only 3oz between his 4 month and 6 month checkups – but now he’s become an accomplished eater and is bulking up!

    This video was taken last weekend. It’s short, and the best part is the SOUND (followed closely by the part where Amory gets a giraffe foot in his eye, and his own punctuating sound effect at the end). Turn up the volume to fully appreciate!!!!!
    We’re now all caught up – next pics to come? NEW ZEALAND!

    Rice cereal! – on February 17th.
    Amory has since graduated to banana, butternut squash, oatmeal, sweet potato, avocado and apple. Tonight is broccoli. We’ll see how that goes!
