Graham has started eating solids, and he is LOVING it!!! We started Jackson at four months (Chow Time), but I wanted to exclusively breastfeed Graham for six months, if I could. We are still going strong in that respect, and I am SOOO happy! Things didn't go swimmingly with Jackson, and I was only able to nurse him for about three months, followed by three months of pumping and formula supplementation. So, this feels like SUCH an accomplishment to me :)
To be honest, I had NO idea when I was going to find time to feed this child solids! He has been interested in our food, but I didn't know to what extent until I offered him a lick of my banana and he opened his mouth wide and grabbed at it with both hands! I immediately mixed up some rice cereal and WATER, and he scarfed that down like it was ice cream! I couldn't believe it! My only thought way, "If you think THIS is good, just WAIT until the real good stuff!" I only plan to do cereal on its own for a couple of days before adding some veggie puree. Up first, PEAS!
