Eliana's First "Solid" Food!

Today we gave Ellie some rice cereal for the first time. Everything indicated her readiness, so we took the plunge, even though it was about a month earlier than we'd planned. She's 20 1/2 weeks and she LOVED the food. She fussed when we put her in the chair (she's not very patient when she's hungry), but once that first bite of cereal hit her lips, she was content for the rest of the feeding. She was like a little bird, opening her mouth in anticipation of the spoon for each bite. She had plenty of cereal dribbling down her chin by the time we were finished, but it went well. As far as I can tell, she was definitely ready for food. It was a momentous occasion. Our baby is growing up. *sniff* *sniff*

Oh, she looks adorable with her little mouth open and ready. A new stage... The fun just continues. :-)

It was so fun! Messy, but fun. She was so eager for each bite - she even started grabbing the spoon and putting it into her mouth! Fun times.
