at our 4 month well baby check, jonas was given the green light to start "solids". while i know that there's a lot of debate on when is best, we decided that the kid is hungry. and frankly, looking at his stats, he can gain a pound or two (at 4 months, 25 3/4 inches tall, 12lbs 11oz, and 15.5 head circumfrence).
so we prepared the first meal, realizing that he'd probably hate it forever, gnashing his gums, throwing rice cereal across the room, blinding me in the process. but it had to be done. the monster was hungry.
the first meal.
not so bad...
please sir, can i have some more?
and you know a meal goes well when you have to get a bath afterwards...
all in all, he did AMAZING. the spoon was no issue at all. actually, his biggest complaint is that i only give him a little bit during one "meal" as his tummy adjusts to all of the new things.
