Meal Time!




Today, Elizabeth had her first taste of "solid" food. (I don't know why they call it that because it is no more solid than a watery milkshake...but, whatever!) She sat in her high chair like a "big girl" for the first time! And then Mommy fed her (rice cereal mixed with milk) from a little spoon. She was a little unsure at first, but then quickly became VERY eager and interested. She managed to swallow some of it, but most ended up dribbling down her chin and onto her bib, which she then grabbed to her mouth to lick up! YUMMY! haha! She was also very interested in grasping for the bowl of mush, so that will be a challenge when Daddy is not around to help! Anyway, we have a cute little video of the event, but Peter was also able to capture some stills of the various stages of the process.

Oh... one important note -- the tray on a high chair is NOT for you to set the bowl when you're feeding her. It's for you to put things you want HER to feed herself. Anything there is considered fair game for her to grab, dump, stick her fingers into and rub in her hair, etc...

Haha! Spoken like a Mom who has been a victim of such "fair game" tactics! ;-)
