Rice, Rice, Baby






Crew has had his first non-milk, non-pedialyte, non-intravenous fluid meal!

He did really well, better than I really expected. I tell ya, sometimes the Tiny Prince thinks he really is eight months old. While I can't declare with perfect certainty that he is my most successful first meal eater (though I do think that's the case), I can tell you that he is the first child of mine that opened his mouth wide like a hippo the first time he saw the spoon coming his direction. He is his mama's son.

He ate one tablespoon of rice cereal plus water. He lost interest by the last few bites, but he finished it!
