Family Traditions, Holiday Cheer, and Honey Bunches of Oats®





It's here. The holiday season. I know what you're thinking... No! Really? Already? You're joking. The time that passed so slowly when we were children--worse than trying to run in quick sand while carrying an entire marching band on your shoulders---is little more than a blink of an eye to a parent. I'm right there with you! But I have to admit it, even though it's terribly cliche to do so. It really is the most wonderful time of the year. My husband, who works tirelessly all year long to provide for our family, has more time off in the last two months of the year than it seems like he receives in the rest of the year combined. Like everyone else, we slow down. We breathe. We laugh and play with our children, and the kids soak up every second of it.

Funny story. Last year, we picked up some cups of hot cocoa and went to a Boy Scouts tree lot to pick out a Christmas tree as a family. After moseying down each aisle, we all eventually agreed on a very lovely Noble Fir that wasn't too tall or too short, not to sparse (Charlie Brown Christmas Tree, anyone?) nor too busy. It really was just right. Now all that was left... was to take it home! Mind you, this tree lot was all of three blocks from our house. I reasoned to my husband that we should walk back to our house and he should drive his work truck back over to pick up the tree. Simple, right? My husband must have had pixie dust sprinkled on him without my knowing it---that, or the sugar from the hot chocolate went to his head. But he was struck with the urge to carry our Christmas tree home. I couldn't talk him out of it. So carry it, he did. It took him half a block to realize it was heavier than he imagined it would be and to start regretting it. But he managed it! The tree came home with us, carried home in a true labor of love... and it was a perfect fit in our living room.

It's the memories like that that make the holiday season---and the ensuing holiday spirit---so much fun! Our Christmas traditions are still changing and evolving, as we like to try different things. But it's been a fun experience to blend together traditions from my husband's family and from my own upbringing into a hybrid form for our own children. We open presents on Christmas Eve (his) and eat our Christmas dinner at mid-day and enjoy it for dinner as well (mine). For Thanksgiving, we have pie for dessert, but for Christmas we skip the pie in favor of a divine Yule Log cake. At the end of the day, it's not even about the presents. It's about the things that we can't buy. The memories, the time, and the love.

What does the holiday season mean in your family? Traditional or radically different, we'd love to hear about what brings your family together this time of year and what this time of year means to you!

Summers here can be brutal. With a daughter that insists on being carrier---I don't think she's spent more than an hour in our BOB stroller accumulatively---finding the right tools to survive the summer heat was absolutely essential.

Introducing Solid Foods to Baby with GERBER CEREALS


So your little one is ready for solids. What's a parent to do? Although the average infant begins to experiment with solid foods at the age of 6 months, my daughter had other ideas. Grand ideas. At barely 4-months-old, my feisty and persistent little girl was snatching at anything and everything on my plate at each and every meal. I have friends who even bore witness to this on multiple occasions, as she would get ready to pounce and make a calculated grab the instant I leaned over to help my son take a bite of his food. She's spilled many a glass of water this way. "Oh my gosh, there's no way," I found myself thinking, "She can't be ready for this. I'm not ready for this!"

It didn't take very long after my daughter's birth for me to realize my daughter was already her own person and did things in her own time. Heck, I knew that even before she was born. If her arrival in the world nearly two weeks late wasn't any indication, I don't know what was!

Eventually, I gave in. Despite my many objects, I had to admit that she was ready for solids. I did not want to miss the window of opportunity where she was extremely curious and eager to eat, and have difficulty later when she might become difficult and picky about her food. So after we got the okay from her pediatrician, it was time to dive in. The first food to start with was a no-brainer: baby cereal. While I've known several, and heard of many, parents who make their own rice cereal for their infant, it's not a route that I ever considered. Making your own baby cereal completely lacks the nutritional value offered by GERBER CEREALS. The perfect reserve of nutrients your baby is born with quickly dwindles as they approach the age where you begin to introduce solids, making it essential to provide them with a good source of iron. Just two serves of GERBER CEREAL a day meets 90% of the daily iron intake your baby needs. It's not hard to see why Gerber is the leader in infant nutrition and #1 food source for iron. In addition, GERBER CEREALS contain VitaBlock, which adds many other essential nutritional benefits for your little one including calcium, zinc, vitamin C, vitamin E, and six B vitamins. The baby cereals from Gerber only contain the good stuff, they are non-GMO, contain no artificial colors or flavors, and is packaged in BPA-free containers. GERBER CEREALS comes in many varieties including: rice cereal, oatmeal, whole wheat cereal, and multigrain cereal. You can find these great cereals for infants in an assortment of flavors, and several GERBER CEREALS are now also available in an organic option.


GERBER CEREAL and other Gerber products are readily available at a wide variety of stores for your convenience. You can refer to the Gerber website to find a store near you, and to find out more about why GERBER CEREAL is the perfect choice for your food-ready infant!

You can conveniently locate GERBER CEREALS at a Walmart location near you.

It was easy to locate the varieties of GERBER CEREAL products offered at my local Walmart.

I settled on three GERBER CEREALS to offer variety to my daughter.

The MultiGrain Cereal is a great option for infants that are further along in their introduction to solids.

Oats are gentle on the stomach and has many benefits. Babies love Gerber oatmeal cereal!

Extra gentle on the tummy, the rice GERBER CEREAL is a perfect first food for food-ready babies.

You can find these and so much more from Gerber. Look for GERBER CEREALS at a store near you!
