We were a little leery of mashed potatoes, but I must admit we
started Gordy on rice cereal at least a month or two earlier than
advised, with no ill effects (though he was still on formula).
Carl Sandburg said "A baby is God's opinion that the world should go
on." When Gordy was born I got a card that said, "A baby is nature's
way of telling you you've been getting too much sleep."
