yum, I think

Eleanor had her first taste of cereal tonight. I thought we would wait until she turned 6 months in October but all the signs pointed to her being ready now. She grabs for food, is sitting up with support, and is exploring with her mouth instead of pushing things out of it.

She seemed to like the rice cereal but made a lot of interesting faces. I think the texture on her tongue was what she found most curious.

Like Oliver, she had her first cereal in the bouncy seat but her "meal" was al fresco, on the back porch. I hope she tolerates the rice better than Oliver did. He did better on oatmeal and barley.
