Adventures in Feeding a Baby
It was time for this little lady to eat something besides formula.
We started off introducing the spoon.
Immediate success. Spoon to mouth. Check.
Then we added a little rice cereal.
Bland, yet satisfying.
We ended with a slightly messy but reasonably happy baby.
I got a little excited about the prospect of feeding Kaitlyn, so I started to prepare for the days beyond rice cereal.
Hello, food processor.
Hello, cute baby in a walker while Mommy works in the kitchen.
Am I a bad mom if I didn't take the time to smooth the baby food in the ice cube trays?
Note to Readers: Broccoli does not make good baby food.
After a few more days of rice cereal practice we made the above progress. Notice how she is opening her mouth for the spoon. Notice also how her tongue is on the side of the high chair tray. :)
This little girl is well on her way to entering the world of solid food.
