Well, we’ve officially entered the world of solid foods. Although “solid” is something of a misnomer when talking about something that has approximately the consistency of wallpaper paste.
When we first started rice cereal, she was less than enthralled. And apparently hadn’t totally lost the tongue-thrust reflex, because her first couple weeks of feedings felt like we were spooning Malt-O-Meal into Gene Simmons’s mouth.
In goes the cereal, out comes the tongue! We thought it might get better once we started mixing in bananas, but it still took almost a week for her to get it. But as of last night we no longer have to worry about her absorbing her nutrients through the skin on her face. She helped her sister plow through a bowl of bananas and cereal, and seemed very pleased to be in better control of the whole process!
Speaking of her sister, it took her approximately two bites to get the hang of things.
Thanks to our rockin’ SAHJ for making the girls’ food! He’s not only handsome, he’s good with a food processor. *Swoon*
