Happy Half Birthday Buddy!

Winter Solstice came and Ezra started eating food and turned 6 months old this week! He eats homemade oat cereal. I blend up 1/4 c. organic whole oat groats, steel cut oats or regular oats in the blender, then cook in 1 c. boiling water for 5 minutes constantly stirring with a wisk. Then add water, breast milk or formula to desired consistency. Once he got used to the oats we started adding (no sugar added) applesauce. He loves it--almost as much as he loves listening to his voice! We will see what he thinks about sweet potatoe next week. I love watching him try food out and learn to eat. He is so funny! Soon we will be trying Millet and then Quinoa...But the change in diaper contents-- I'm not gonna lie...it's not zesty.
