First Food


Gabriella hadn't been started on solids in Guatemala so we waited until her 6 month pediatrician appointment before we started anything. Today, she had her first food - some rice cereal. She absolutely loved it!!! Kept grabbing for the spoon and squealing for more. I didn't give her too much as I didn't want to upset the tummy or anything. Took a number of bites before she figured out how to swallow it instead of spitting it out, but she started to get the hang of it.

Here is the aftermath...

I can't get enough of looking at her pictures. I am so glad she took quickly to eating the cereal. I bet its more yummy than formula.

Oh, I just want to squeeze her. What a happy baby! Glad she loved her rice cereal.
Give her a big smooch for me, please.
Love, Auntie Ady.

Wow! This is bringing it all back for me. I still remember how excited I was to start my daughter on solids, but after we did, I was like "oh no, she's growing up too fast"

My husband and I decided that rice cereal was the grossest thing we'd ever fed our baby. As a blogging friend of ours put it, It looks like mica and smells like fish food. Really more of an adhesive than a grain. :-)
