Several weeks ago we started rice cereal...it wasn't one of Cole's favorites, but when we started mixing it with warm water instead of breast milk he took it down a little better.
Once Cole hit the 5 month mark, we dove into the solids. We started with squash and that was an absolute flop. Cole literally gagged it down, and within seconds he spit it back up. I had to laugh because when I smelled the jar I had to agree with him.
We waited a day or two and decided to jump into sweet potatoes. Many moms told me that sweet potatoes were their childs' favorite so I thought we'd go for it. Boy o' boy were they a hit. He looked like a little bird asking for more with an open mouth. Carrots were another success.
Starting solids has been a lot of fun. I love watching Cole's facial expressions when he tastes the new food on his tongue. I can't even imagine what that must be like for him...
