Baby's First Meal

I swore at Little Bit's 4 month doctor visit that I was going to wait until after the holidays to start feeding her. I caved. Was it the way she reached at everything I ate (because she is almost always sitting on my lap during meals)? Or the longing look in her eyes for something that everyone else was having? Who knows, but I had an *extra* 15 minutes before picking Mimi up from preschool yesterday so decided I could do this. I forgot how messy this is! And that I have to do it for every meal time. Mommy brain; it's a little cloudy at times.

Her favorite thing to do right now is the "raspberry" sound, ppfffttt. Like she's blowing bubbles. She does it right when she is done nursing. She did it in the middle of the night a few nights back (just for fun and to see who she could wake up - play with - at that time). She'll ppffftttt constantly for a minute or two to get some good laughs. She's already a ham. So she took her first bite and pppfffftttt'd it all over. Very funny. I guess there is no going back now!


  1. LOL! What a cutie! We started early with Evan too!

  2. How cute! She looks like she loved it. We held out until 5 1/2 months with the G-man. He was so happy when we finally gave him some food. Apparently he had been waiting a long time!
