We spontaneously introduced Elynor to the world of real food this weekend. She's been reaching for our food while sitting with us at dinner for the past several weeks. So on Saturday, Ryan decided it was time to give her a taste. He dramatically marched to the kitchen, poured some rice cereal into an adult table spoon and then ran it under the sink. Hardly the ideal first feeding - my skepticism rose as I sat at the table, waiting.
But my skepticism was soon proved wrong. The lack of proper feeding utensils or mixing technique proved to be no problem for our hungry munchkin. She apparently loved the cereal, reaching for more. We tried it again on Sunday - still no baby utensils, but a full bowl full. And again, it was as if she was eating a hot fudge sundae. Oh, girl... you just wait. You've just entered a whole new world!
