We could not have asked for a happier, better baby! Brady has brought so much joy to our family. At 5 months we started him on solid food. Apparently I could have started him earlier but hey, it's been a long time since I had Mitch and Ali. I didn't remember. I was just waiting for the dr to tell me when to start feeding him. He love his food, his favorites are Sweet Potatoes, Mac N Cheese and Carrots. At 5 months he was sitting up with help. Laughing and talking (baby talk of course) a lot. I think he was actually holding his bottle earlier but by this time he was holding it almost all the time without help even though mom didn't want to give up holding him to feed him. What a fun baby, I am soooo in love!
