Food, glorious food.

If you have ever seen the movie Oliver you know where my blog title comes from. If not I highly recommend it, I loved this musical as a child, but you can listen to the food, glorious, food below if you so choose.

When Ari was 4 months old her doctor told me she was ready to start solids, so on Christmas day she got to have her first taste of rice cereal.

Well, because of this experience we assumed that at Devyn's 4 month appointment her doctor would also recommend to start feeding her solid food. When she didn't I asked when we should start and she said that they are now finding that it is better to wait to start them later and she recommended waiting until 6 months. We dutifully waited even though we could tell that Devyn would have been happy to get her mouth on something other than that bottle. We thought about starting her last week, but where Ari, Devyn and I were going to Utah over the weekend I decided that I didn't want to have to deal with all of the mess while we were away so we decided to wait until we got back Sunday night. After getting home Sunday we thought it might be a good idea to make sure that rice cereal was what they still recommended for their first food and since Devyn had her 6 month appointment the following morning we thought it couldn't hurt to wait one more day. Well monday came and we found out that sure enough rice cereal is that way to go so we were going to feed her that night but then we ended up having so much going on that by the time we would have gotten to feed her it was too late and she was cranky and tired and we wanted it to be a good experience so we waited yet again. Tuesday it was. I was home sick, so as soon as Ari got home from school we got the video camera ready. She LOVED it! No transition time for her. She is definitely going to be an eater. Cereal=Yummy

Love seeing any gooey little face of a babe getting a taste of their first "real food" particularly this darling little one (love those eyes). It looks like from the various hands that everyone in the family had a "hand" in feeding her. My question is who got to give the first spoonful?
