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.
