Babies new foods: Squash

So on sunday we started monkey on a new food. We decided to try some squash. She sort of made a face at first but then continued to eat it so I guess that she liked it? lol. She made a wierd face when Chris pretended to take a bit off her spoon instead of giving it to her. So now around lunch time we are giving her a tablespoon or two of rice cereal and then at supper time a tablespoon of squash. She gobbles both up it makes me feel again she isn't getting enough breast milk. I think I am done with nursing, or at least mostly. I probably will not drop the just before bed, in the middle of the night or the morning feedings unless when we get to that point she doesn't want to nurse. I made it to 6 months so I am happy with that. The only thing that scares me about stopping is that I nurse her to sleep. I wish that I wouldn't have gotten in that habit but for my own sanity it was just so much easier. At night time Chris can get her to sleep but it takes almost an hour (if for some reason she wakes up when we try to put her in her crib) but then she has the natural it's night time so you should be sleeping clock going against her trying to stay awake. I have no idea what I am going to do during the day to get her to nap! I'm usually stressed enough trying to get her to sleep long enough, or get enough short naps in that she isn't cranky mccrank pants all day long. I guess doing it sooner then later is better since I will have to go back to work in Jan and I won't be around to nurse on demand anymore. The question now is when will I actually start to wean. I might wait until after her next baby well check (which is next week) and be able to talk to the nurse and the doctor. I have no idea what to do anymore....

Her not sure what to think face...

Not impressed that daddy is pretending to eat her food face...lol
