Henrik just turned 6 months old (can you believe that?!) and got his first taste of rice cereal. He'd been tortured at every meal, watching us eat and trying very hard to get a bite of it... now it's his turn. He eagerly accepted that spoon and after licking his lips a little bit he decided that was enough tasting - time for some SERIOUS slurping! I was carefully spooning it in (ya know, so he could get used to this new phenomenon) and he started to fuss, but I couldn't figure out why until Joe wisely informed me, "You're not feeding him fast enough." So I sped up and he brightened up! Since then he's enjoyed sweet potatoes, squash and applesauce. He's still getting used to the slightly sour applesauce, but the kid is a natural born eater, and is determined! Look out, grocery bill!!
