Well, I was going to wait until Gabe was 6 months old to try food. However, this little guy has had other ideas. He has been fascinated with food! We used to be able to hold him while we ate our dinner, but he's decided now that he has to grab our fork/spoon and tries to eat whatever we're eating. Since he was showing such an interest, and the pediatrician said it was ok to start cereal after 4 months - we decided to give it a go.
We weren't terribly successful at getting much into his mouth....but he's showing interest, and is really good at opening his mouth when the spoon comes close. He's pretty good at putting the food in his mouth....but he's also pretty great at spitting it back out again. I know there's somewhat of a learning curve for he and I - so I am sure we'll get better at it. The last 2 nights he's improved some each night, and I think last night he might have even kept a bite or 2 in his mouth.
