Jumping into the deep end.

December 3, 2009

Well, we have taken the plunge.  I resisted for so long to start Ainsley on solid foods and I finally gave in.  In truth, since she is not a big eater, I really didn’t see the need–I wanted to wait until she was around 6 months and eating more.  Alas, I figure this will give us some extra time to practice and she isn’t really getting that much anyway.  I don’t force a lot on her and don’t really plan on getting on the solid food fast track.  We, like most parents, started with the rice cereal.  Much to my surprise, she took to it as much as she could.  The first time I held the spoon to her mouth, she opened up and I shoved it in.  I actually tried the cereal, it was NASTY.  I repeat NASTY.  But in all, she is a good sport.

As previously state, Ainsley is starting to really love her Bumbo.  I love putting her in it as she is so cute.  It practically swallows her up, but who wouldn’t love a little 17 week, 14 pound shrimp in it.  I just want to squeeze her cheeks!!!
