Gerber Turkey Dinner Will Not Send Your Kid to Therapy: Mommy Martyrdom and Homemade Baby Food

Lately, I’ve been wondering if I have some sort of mommy bipolar disorder thing going on.

First Time For Everything

Last night, we ventured for the first time into the wonderful world of semi-solids! Noob Baby had her first taste of rice cereal, and clearly, it wasn’t crazzzy delicious. As she sat there gagging on her gruel, I was thinking fondly about this being her first “meal.” She also just recently got her first two teeth.
