My DS is 9 mos today, he has had solids here and there for the last month or so, but today seemed especially interested. So. I opened one of the Gerber foods we had for him, peaches, and he is done! It was a first foods. Should he be one 2nd or 3rds? It just seemed to easy. Not sure how to explain it. He is crawling, pulling up and cruising along things and can stand alone for a few seconds. I am lost as to which stage for him!

he has 2 teeth, on bottom

How about homemade baby food from softly steamed, whole foods?

 I definitely wouldn't go up to the 3rds yet..he just hasn't had enough experience with solid foods yet.  You also don't want to introduce too many different types at once..incase he has an allergic reaction.  So now that you've started him with the peaches, i would go ahead and finish off this week with just peaches.  Are you still planning on BF'ing him as well?  Maybe next week move up to a 2nd stage..but stick with the same one all week.

we do carrots,avocados, apples, peaches, all kinds of home made stuff.  But for easy on the go, we do the Gerber organic stuff. But the 1st just seems like water to me. And the seconds are not much different.

he is okay with peaches, pears, apples, bananas, prunes, carrots, green beans, peas, avocados, cantaloupe, watermelon, honey dew, whole grain crackers and toast, as well as small pieces of whole grain pasta. My mom even gave him some of those start poof things the other day, and he LOVED them!!
 We do not do the cereals, had been experiences with the oldest. But yes, I will continue to BF until at least a year, and then let him self wean, when ready after that.

The 2nds are the same, just greater in volume.  I would get the gerber graduates of diced veggies and fruits or just cut up your own soft or canned fruits.  If he has tried all that other stuff, he will be fine.  If you want to stick with having convenience foods when out, then keep some of the 2nds around.

Stage 2. You can also fork mash a lot of regular foods you eat and add water to make it liquidy. Is your child pincer grasping food yet? If so, try large curd cottage cheese and forked mashed strawberries or bananas (for flavor). My kids HATED stage 3 foods. We never did them.
