Lily had her first experience with solid food this week. She had a modest helping of rice cereal. I'm not sure what she thought was more strange: the taste, the consistency, or four crazy people hovering over her while she ate. It was quite the event!
She did a great job. Towards the end though she started playing with her food by blowing raspberries. I'm looking forward to trying things with a little more flavor in the weeks to come.
Oh, and I just wanted to let you all in on a little secret. Really, I just want to dispel a myth that I have known to be false since Abigail. Rice cereal (or any solids for that matter) does NOT equal better or longer stretches of sleep. I'll leave it at that.
