eating

We've started feeding Daniel some solid food. So far it's been mushy rice cereal or sweet potatoes, fed from the end of my finger or a little spoon. At the first experience of a new taste, he gets this bewildered, wrinkley-nosed look on his face; but he doesn't push it away, and soon he is opening his mouth for more. He's mastered the art of pushing it to the back of his mouth with his tongue and swallowing, but there's always plenty left to drool onto his bib. I think it's just as much an adventure for me as it is for him — I can't believe we're starting on solids already! Here's one of those obligatory first meal pictures: some very runny cereal.

So he's finally starting solids! At five months! I guess that's the normal age. Glad it's going well, all in all!

YAAY!! Isn't it cute and fun? Some babies really dig it, others could care less. Graycen loves it too! Congrats on your big milestone!

Sue, I'm sorry, but I removed your comment. I'll e-mail you about why. I know weve talked about how frustrating things are for you right now, and I'm right here if you need to talk more.
