I have read a lot about the baby led weaning as well. This allows your kids to feed themselves which I am also trying out. I'm kind of all over the place trying all sorts of things to see what he likes best and what works for us. I am thinking that the baby led weaning is going to be our best option because Jimmer loves feeding himself. This week I'm going to cut up some avacado, peaches, and some turkey or chicken to see how he likes that. It's so funny when he doesn't like something. The other day I put french toast and scrambled eggs on his tray...when I turned around the french toast was completely gone and he hadn't touched the egg. Clearly not his favorite.

I just have to comment on the class that I go to at the MAC on Tuesday nights. This is the class and description on the website:
Fitness Interval Training - is a high intensity, low choreography old-school workout. Combine cardio intervals with weights to get your whole workout in one. Studies have shown interval training leads to better, faster results. All levels.
I just want to say that I would change and/or add some things to this description: Extremely high intensity, plyometrics, and certainly not for all levels. I love this class...it's the greatest and most challenging class I've ever attended since graduating college. It's only 45 minutes long which I love so it doesn't cut into a lot of my evening time with Jimmer. It's on Tuesday nights from 5:45 to 6:30 pm. Yesterday was only the third time I've gone and it was just as painful and challenging as the first two. It's one of those classes that you get out of it what you put in. The instructor gives several variations of the moves to make it less or more intense. I love pushing myself in this class. Last week I almost thought I would have to leave because I felt light headed and like I was going to get sick. Thankfully I avoided that embarrassement. I highly reccommend this class for those of you who belong to the MAC or any gym with a similar class structure.

And here are some phone pictures of my baby boy... I love him more every day:)
