My Baby Girl is starting to teethe. A pang shot through me when my Lover and I reached this conclusion, because it hit me that my baby isn’t going to be a baby forever. Today she’s drooling and chewing on everything, and tomorrow she’ll be eating steak while asking for money to take to the mall. This is too fast for me!

I’ve said more than a few times that teething is a good sign that my baby will be ready to start experimenting with solid foods, and since we are at five months now I guess that it’s time for me to stick to my word and start thinking about it. As much as I would like to keep her my squirmy little bundle of joy forever, I have to remember that part of my job is to teach her how to grow up. If that means spooning mushy peas into her mouth, then I shall gladly do it — it will be an adventure for both of us.

Weening won’t happen any time soon. I’m not remotely ready for that.
