At the Heath household this week, we've had a lot of firsts.
On Sunday morning, 9/9/9/12, little Oliver tried his first bite of rice cereal. He was neither happy nor mad about eating it ... he just rolled it around in his mouth, spit most of it out, and swallowed a little bit. Since Sunday, we've been trying a little bit of cereal each day. I'm really not in a rush to get him eating "solids" ... but, because Jackson is such a great eater, I am trying to introduce new things in the same manner as I did with him. Oliver is just taking his cereal one day at a time.
Yesterday, 9/11/12, Jackson started his first day of "Mommy & Me" preschool. What a wonderful set-up this place is! It is a brand new preschool in our area designed for children ages 2-5 where they attend class once a week with a parent. I plan to start Jax in "real" preschool next year, but I thought this would be such an excellent transition to get him ready. We go every Tuesday morning form 9:30-12:30am. I am there if he needs me, but he participates with the other children and the teachers on his own. I am so, so, so impressed with how much learning he will do in this little class! This week, they worked on learning his right hand, the letter "B," and cleaning his room! :) I was so proud of my little man ... who walked right up to the first girl he saw and gave her a BIG hug. Then, stuck out his hand for a hand shake and said "nice to meet you." How sweet!
Jackson was less-than-thrilled about posing for a picture before we left for preschool together.
But, once we got there ... he had a ball!
And for those of you who want a closer look, here's a sweet video of Jackson's first day:
