Wilder's First Try at Solids

WE gave Wilder a wee bit of rice cereal this weekend. I didn't think he would be quite ready, as he hasn't taken interest in our eating & hasn't figured out how to sit "properly" in the Bumbo. I was pretty much right--he liked chewing on the spoon, sucking his thumb, and leaning over his seat instead of eating! We were stoked to see him experience something new and are excited at his journey toward supplementing milk with solid foods. I wonder if I'll be one of those moms who has to "sample" some of the chicken-peas-taters and zingy apple purees just to "test the temperature"!!

By the way, Wild's 21 weeks old today! We went to our first Parents as Teachers playgroup, which I'm suspecting was sensory overload for him (um, me too); but he did well! Also, he's rolled over from back to tummy a couple of times, and loves chewing on his toes!

All done! Mommy's fingers taste better than rice!

is it just me, or does that little boy get cuter and cuter everyday? (or—from my perspective—every time you post a new blogpost) You and shawn are so blessed.

Aw man, surely it's not time for real food yet....I cannot believe how much he is growing (i think I always write this on your wall)! Miss you guys tons!

BTW, love the cocoa pebbles in the background....They're even the non-generic brand!

Yay for solids! I thought Fallyn was going to be hopeless...then I figured out that she didn't like rice but liked barley or oatmeal (and it's a bit more nutritious, too!). Good job Wilder!
