Well, sort of solid. Last night, Junior got her first taste of solid food. By solid, I mean one part rice cereal to five parts formula. As I said, sort of solid. More like liquid with the occasional chunk in it. The Mrs. was feeding her while I was videotaping the momentous occasion. The first bite, Junior looked quite confused. She moved her mouth a bit, realized it was OK and swallowed. Then, she grinned from ear to ear. She was obviously happy to discover that there is more than one type of food on the planet (she had only had formula for the last 13 weeks).
Me and the wife then switched (I got to feed while she taped it). Whereas she ordinarily eats between four and six ounces of formula, she only had about eight bites of cereal then washed it down with a sip or two of formula. Not much in terms of volume but I guess the different consistency filled her up.
A good time was had by all. Now, we’re counting down two more weeks until the introduction of baby food. We’ll be changing the consistency of the formula/cereal mixture between now and then to increase the food’s solidity.
