Starting Solids

After weeks of reading about it, talking with other about moms about it, and likely spending far too much time fretting over it, (mostly the amount of commitment and preparedness it would take)... we dove in and Rory is now starting to eat some sort of semblance of real food!

It was a bit of a rocky start with rice cereal. Rory REALLY did not like it. Or oats for that matter.

But from there we moved onto Barley and surprisingly he LOVED it. Peter said he wasn't surprised as Barley is the grain you make beer and whiskey out of. I guess he comes by his taste preferences honestly then.

Since then we have tried bananas... Rory thinks they are a magic taste elixir. It's like I am feeding him pure chocolate. Look at this delighted smile.

And just yesterday we tried sweet potato and it was greeted with the same smiles. I think this kid might have a natural sweet tooth.

Things these days are just too much fun! This is a great age.

Thanks Gramma and Grumpa for my new high chair. I love sitting up in it like a big boy!
