    Evan had colic

    Evan had colic, which is a condition where the baby cries pretty much for no reason at the same time every day. Probably there is a reason, but doctors don't know much about it yet! Evan cried almost every day from 4:00-6:00 in the afternoon. The only thing that made him happy was to be in this Moby wrap and walk around with me (mostly becasue he usually fell asleep!).

    Solid foods for babyOk, so this picture isn't actually from his first time with rice cereal - that day, he screamed and cried like he was being tortured! This was a couple days later when he figured out that he did at least like to play with the spoon.

    How to make baby foodEvan's first experience with "real food" instead of baby cereal was carrots and he loved them! Unfortunately for Mr. Kruder, he sneezed after his second bite and Mr. Kruder got covered in carrots!
