The next step in parenting...SOLID FOOD!!! It was a scary thought, and honestly I wasn't really ready to give in to anything besides bottles, but Everett seemed to want more. Obviously I can't say no to Everett...he's just so cute...so I went and bought some rice cereal and this morning we tried it for the first time.
Everett was a huge fan. He had a little trouble in the beginning knowing how to swallow what was in his mouth, but he quickly got the hang of it. When I would pause for a moment he would grunt like...come on mom, I want more!...so I gave him more. He seemed to really enjoy food. Ella also had a bit of trouble swallowing what was in her mouth, and she really didn't catch on as easily as Everett did...but tomorrow is another day. I am sure that she will get the hang of it soon.
I attached some photos of our first adventure in the world of solid food. Hope you like them. Now on to bigger and better things.
