We had decided that after our Disney trip we would start Kelsey on rice cereal. (I gave it to her once at 4 months, but I didn't feel ready yet. So after reading research we decided to wait until 6 months) She will be 6 months old (I know, I can't believe it either) next Saturday.
After we got home and got settled, I strapped her high chair onto a kitchen chair and mixed up a bowl of cereal. She did really well, reaching for the spoon out of my hands and swallowing most of went in her mouth. She was chatting it up so Lou tried to get her on video, but as you can see, she just looks at the camera and smiles :-)
Towards the end she was spitting some out and making faces. All in all I think it went well, and Lou is going to give her a little before bedtime tonight. Just one more thing to remember to do everyday now! After her 6 month check up on the 5th we are going to start adding in pureed foods too. What exciting times lay ahead!!! I'm keeping with the motto a friend told me "Food before one is nothing but fun".
