Solids - The Verdict

A pictoral summary of Carter's first foray into solid foods :

We started with rice cereal first thing in the morning. He sat in his Bumbo chair and as soon as he saw the spoon coming at him he GRABBED it and thrust it into his mouth. The entire experience continued pretty much just like that. Let's just say he's a fan.

In the afternoon we moved forward with avocado. Here he is, looking a little trepidacious...perhaps he wasn't so sure of the bright green slime coming at him.

Mommy, that stuff looks FUNNY. Are you sure about this??

Giving it a try.

He took one bite and BAM - hooked! The boy loves his avocado.

More! More! More!
He finished the first portion I'd mashed (and mixed with breastmilk) quickly, so I made another little serving. He scarfed that up, too.

Avocado overload?

Things are looking a little blurry, but I think I like this stuff...

Eating is fun! Look at me!

I'm a big boy now!

All in all, we couldn't have hoped for a better first feeding experience - he loved them both and ate seconds of each. Looks like he's a born eater, like his mom and dad.
