We've been working hard to get him to sit up on his own, and he is doing really well now. We will start solids tonight, baked sweet potato fries are on the menu! Nursing has become quite the feat lately. I have to take him to a silent, somewhat dark room, he'll nurse for maybe 10 minutes at the most. I guess he has learned to be efficient since we are always being interrupted by prying, noisy siblings.
I cannot even express how much I adore my Pepper (the kids' new nickname for him). He is so easy right now, I am soaking up every moment of it before he becomes mobile and a troublemaker :-)
