Today we started rice cereal. We knew it was time because Evelyn was eyeing all of our food. She screamed when Josh wouldn’t let her have some of his soda. Our Dr. told us not to start solids until she was 6 months old, but this girl was ready to get going. She also was having a hard time making it between feedings. Breastfeeding was not keeping her full through the night. So for my sanity and possibly hers we got started a little early. I had heard some stories and read that babies tend to not like rice cereal and that it takes a few times to get the hang of it. So with camera in hand we were ready for the horrible reaction we were told about. Well, Miss Evie is the exception. She loved the cereal and has gulped it down everyday since then. I need to learn how to spoon feed a baby. Poor girl had it all over her face and a little up her nose.
