Opal Eats Food!

On July 24th, 2 weeks before she turns 6 months old, Opal tries her first solid food. 
Rice Cereal - Yum!  (I've always waited until 6 months, but this girl was hungry!)



She doesn't know what to think at first. 


But soon she realizes it's a good thing. She really loves it but can't figure out how to get it in her mouth. So she sucks it off the spoon. 

It's taken almost a month for her to figure out if she opens her mouth, she gets more food in there.  She is now experimenting with squash, peas, carrots and prunes. Carrots, so far, are her favorite.

Ha ha ha! That's a pretty funny first food face! Nice catch!

I'd like to add that Opal has now mastered eating! At first, she more or less licked her food off the spoon, but now she's a pro.

Hey, I love how you do a bunch of blogs all at once! Just a little question: At what point did you give your babes smaller pieces of food to feed themselves? That's all Clara wants now: pieces of green beans, carrots, pears, peaches, etc. instead of pureed baby food. I'm thinking it's ok, but not sure . . .
