Kylie, Karter and Cleaning

I had a few things on my agenda today, mow the lawn, go to work, clean the house. I mowed the lawn this morning before work so I feel good about that. Karen is at work and I have been home since 2:30pm. All I really wanted to do was get the house clean and play with my kids.
Well, I have the playing with my kids down pact tonight but the cleaning part, not so much. I am finding it really hard to clean today when I have a monkey named Kylie climbing all over everything while I am trying to do dishes.  The girl scares me but I can not help but laugh when she gets on something and starts saying no hands, something Karen taught her.
Karter and Kylie were also hungry at the same time so I gave Kylie some food and got Karter his cereal and bottle. OK, fed the kids so now I can clean right? Nope, Monkey girl is at it again. So I give up on cleaning tonight and write this quickly while Kylie digs in her toybox.
Now she decided to come snuggle with me so this is a good night.

First Foods

I am doing this post from my phone so we will see how it turns out.
Well, Karter is five months old and we have decided to start him on some home made vegetables.  Yesterday we gave him some peas, which he really seemed to like; and honestly, how can you not like peas.
Today, we gave him some sweet potatoes that we had made. I think he ate the sweet potatoes faster than the peas.
It feels good to be giving him something more than a bottle and watching him try new things. We are still trying new foods with Kylie at 20 months and it is fun hearing her say mmmm when she tries something new she likes.
what first foods did your infant really love?
