FIRSTS! SOLID FOODS!


So....it may have been small, and it may have been awfully soft....but yesterday, I ate my first solid food! On the menu for my first solid meal was some rice cereal. A few ounces of breast milk, and a few teaspoons of cereal, and I was on my way. I have to say, I was definitely a fan.
Mom was quite amused by my lunging forward towards the spoon...I was even trying to get more of it in my mouth before she had a chance to put more on the spoon. Hey, it's not MY fault that she's slow at refilling.  
Dad held me, while Mom fed me. Both of them took a few pictures, and Dad filmed some video as well.
The rice cereal was a fine choice for a first meal. The complex flavors, and subtle texture made for a bold, memorable dining experience.  As you can tell, I had a lot of fun eating for the first time. I took to the spoon immediately (I had seen Mom and (sorta) Dad using them correctly for several months.) and didn't have any trouble with it. I knew this was my moment to shine, and I didn't want to screw it up!
The first picture below shows the bowl when Mom first filled it, and the second picture is what was left after I was done eating. I didn't really know how to signal that I was full since I've never had to do that before, so I settled for the old tried and true: I made a face, and refused to swallow any more rice cereal. They gave me a couple more spoonfuls just to make sure that I was done, and I just threw them another sour face.

Thank you both so much! The spoon DID look pretty tasty...I don't know why they don't just make the spoon out of food!
