I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t dreading this day a little bit. I had expected to be excited about Arden’s first solids, but instead I found myself stalling and feeling just a little bit sad. In my mind, the more real food she eats the less she will depend on me. While I’m not trying to get on the cover of Time magazine, I have grown quite attached to nursing and the bond that goes along with it….and it’s just strange to think that at some point in the coming months it will be over. But that’s a different post for a different day, my friends 🙂 This post is about Arden’s first experience with lovely rice cereal.
I expected her to hate it. I mean, just look at that face…
|You want me to do what?|
She was hesitant at first…
But it didn’t take long for her to start slurping it out of the spoon.
…then trying to take control!
…then turning into a crazy woman 🙂
So all in all I would say it was a successful “first”. Now I just need to suck it up and start getting excited about what’s ahead…peaches, sweet potatoes, peas, etc 🙂
I think this girl is!
