Mila Chows Down

I gave Mila her first solid food today - a bit of rice cereal.  I know she's a little young to be starting solids; I didn't start Cade til he was close to 4 1/2 months - but Mila is READY.  She is hungry all the time, and most of all she's just plain ol' bored and needs something to do, so I decided to let her eat!

The cereal itself is disgusting - a little rice cereal mixed with hot water and formula - I tried a little bit and literally gagged and made that gross/shudder face that a kid makes when sucking on a lemon - but fortunately, Mila is kind of too stupid to know what's good and what's gross, seeing as she's never tasted Diet Coke or maple donuts before.  Her standards are low.

She wasn't very good at eating, but they never are the first time around.  She didn't even know what to do with the stuff in her mouth - she'd kind of slosh it around her mouth then push it back out with her tongue.  It made for a very messy meal, but I'm sure she'll get better at it.  :)

She's so cute! Love that little tuft of hair on top that kind of sticks up. J hated rice cereal. Now, he's a garbage disposal. It's so hard entertaining a baby when they're so little....I was going crazy with boredom, and sometimes still am. Does Cade goof around with her?

Oh, my goodness, she looks so much like Cade in these pictures.
