Sorry I missed this a few days ago! I swear sometimes I have both selective vision AND hearing.
Thanks for the welcome!
About me: I'm a stay at home mommy to my first and so far only child. His name is Jacob and he is of course the chubster in my avatar photo. He's close to 10 months old now and a bull in a china shop. We do some purees with him but for the most part we loosely follow baby led weaning.
I'm coming up on 3 years married and I have an early childhood cert. and used to teach preschool but chose to stop when I had DS. We're hoping to buy our first house soon and when we do I hope to start a gigantic garden and learn how to do canning. We'll probably start ttc #2 sometime soon, can't wait!
Probably kind of lack luster but DS is doing some pretty hardcore teething right now and I'm sleep deprived!
Nice to meet you! I'm 30yrs old, live with DH and Kirsty is our first and only baby. I wish I had done baby-led weaning, I now only chop foods & put it on a plate in front of Kirsty, she self-feeds using her hands. I wish I started out like this, altho spoon-feeding was fine, she loved her food no matter how she got it. I just think it's good for babies to be given the means to pick up food and try to aim their mouth!
How many teeth has your little one got so far? Is he crawling?
ETA: lol!!!! Actually, I'm 31 now (birthday was November )

Lol I've done that a few times "I'm 23, WAIT NO! I'm 24!" I'm 24 and DH is turning 30 in 2 weeks. He's got one heck of a mid life crisis going on because of it.
He's got 3 teeth in and I can see at least 4 poking out ready to descend. 2 other places for molars look like they're swollen for teeth to start coming down but who knows, could just be swollen from the overall effect of the 4 teeth I can see. He is crawling and he's working on walking/cruising. He has almost NO interest in most of his toys because he constantly wants to move but hey, it makes for more breaks for mom lol.
The baby led weaning thing is fun but there's something to be said for the controlled part of spoon feeding! I was kind of yelled at by his first pedi for doing BLW and that was the final straw that made me switch his doc (this new one supports it and he's "old school" go figure). I let him self feed purees some times but its messy messy messy. He loves it though.
Kirsty is a cutie! How is she doing with teething and such?
