|What is this?|
Our very first solids!
At our 4 month appointment, our pediatrician asked us to tell her what Peanut did while we ate. So we did. We told her how she follows the chips from the bag to my mouth. How she freezes and watches any time one of us tries to stuff our face. How she loves to smell whatever we’re tasting.
So our pediatrician said that it sounds like Addison wants to try that food for herself. And we had to oblige.
|Mom, go faster!|
I was scared. And nervous. I’m not sure what about, but I’m guessing it has something to do with her growing up way too quickly.
|Ugh, here, let me help you|
But from this very first meal, it looks like I shouldn’t have. Because she seemed to love it.
|Must shove food into mouth|
She thought it was the funnest thing. Ever. She watched me scoop it in her mouth, then tried to help by shoving her hands (covered with rice cereal) in as well.
|I'm saving that for later|
Then she got tired of not being able to gobble up a ton of it, so we quit while we were still ahead.
So there you have it. We have a kid who’s eating solids.
Dear time – I quit. Could you quit as well?
When did your little ones start eating solids?
