Benjamin tried some rice cereal last week, his first attempt at solids. He didn't really get the hang of pushing it to the back of his mouth, so we're waiting a few days to try again. But we did take pictures for posterity.
He smiled and giggled all the way through his six-month checkup this morning. He's nearly 16 pounds now, and 26-and-three-quarters inches tall. (Daniel had his checkup, too, and weighed in at 26 pounds and 34 inches.) He's getting over a cold, so we didn't do the DTaP shot as I'd planned. We'll go back and do it when he's better; I'm in no hurry.
