In other news, Charlie turned 6 months old on October 25th! He is now beginning to eat solid foods aka liquid oatmeal and other pureed mush! So far it's going ok but it's pretty messy and sometimes we wonder if any of the food actually ends up in his tummy! We've also learned that what goes in must come out! Since introducing real-people food into Charlie's menu, his diaper changes have become somewhat less pleasant! Is that TMI? :)
Also - the dreaded flu season is here! Dun dun dun! I feel like I've never experienced a scarier flu season than this year with the media-frenzied H1N1 virus lurking about. But having a baby to care for makes it so much more scarier! We are doing everything we can to keep the little booger germ free b/c there is nothing more terrifying than the thought of caring for a 6 month old with the flu! Unfortunately the swine flu has already plagued Charlie's babysitter and a couple of other children she watches. Mom and Dad have had to work from home to take care of him and thankfully Jacob's mom has also graciously agreed to help us out on days we can't stay home. Needless to say we are gritting our teeth to get through this flu season!
