To Pea or Not to Pea

Last night, the baby got his first taste of realish food: pureed peas. I really wanted to start him out with carrots, but it turns out I don't have any. One of the other wives in Texas had given us a box of baby food and the box said there were carrots inside, but there weren't. She had just put a bunch of food in that box. So Caleb got to eat peas instead. He didn't like them.

I don't know if it was just a coincidence or what, but after having had peas (followed by rice cereal since he didn't eat much of the peas) for dinner, Caleb did not want to go to bed. We put him down at eight and he was completely asleep. That only lasted for half an hour. It wasn't until 2 a.m. that we got him to finally stay asleep, after several short half an hour or less naps and many long hours of cranky wakefulness.

So tonight we'll be skipping the peas and seeing if the baby sleeps. Brandon thinks he's probably still messed up from Hawaii and the time change. Depending on how things go tonight, maybe we'll try peas again tomorrow. Or maybe I'll go buy some carrots.
