for Katie to get her first taste of rice cereal! She has been watching every.single.thing that everyone has been eating for the past month or so. And over the past 2 weeks, she has started to grab whatever we are eating off the table and put it into her mouth.
I picked up a box of cereal at lunch and we decided that she would eat a bowl while we ate dinner. Katie loved it!! I made it quite a bit thicker than Michael's first bowl of cereal but she handled it great. She doesn't have any teeth yet but I think they are coming. She actually tried to grab the spoon and guide it toward her mouth, as I wasn't feeding her fast enough. She ate the whole bowl and cried a bit at the end because it was over.
So now she gets it every night when we eat dinner and after a week has gone by, I will start to introduce some other foods. I am not sure what we will try next but am thinking it will definitely be a vegetable as I don't want her to get spoiled by sweet foods. Although judging by the way she ate the cereal, I think she will eat just about anything that's offered to her!
Here is a picture of Katie, waiting for a little more cereal:
