First Thanksgiving

Ben spent most of his first Thanksgiving at home with me because we wanted to keep him as germ free as possible. He made a brief appearance at Josh's family dinner and my mom came by and spent several hours with us in the afternoon.

During the beginning of the week he was pretty fussy and wasn't interested in eating anything (only nursing). That has slowly eased up through the week and he is back to eating a sleeping a little better. Ben insists on feeding himself and is pretty stubborn when either of us try to feed him with a spoon. He ate a big lunch of Thanksgiving leftovers yesterday for lunch and he still managed to down most of the mashed potatoes with his hands.


  1. very cool! has he been out of the womb as long as he was in yet?

  2. Yes, it was 3 weeks ago, but I didn't think about it until after the fact. Oh well...
