Solid food!

So Chloe is about 5 1/2 months old now, and her doctor told me to wait until she was 6 months old to give her solid food, but I just could not wait! Chloe is so interested in food now. Whenever Andrew and I are eating something she tries to reach for it and she loves to suck on water bottles and glasses. Empty ones, of course! Here she is waiting for the food....
Yummy rice cereal! It her her a few spoonfuls to figure out how to swallow, but she got the hang of it pretty quickly! (in these pictures, Chloe's hair looks orangish, but it is really not that color. I think it is the hot pink high chair cover making a funny contrasting color.)
Chloe thinks she is ready to feed herself!!

Back in the day.... the dark ages when I my kids were littel they used to tell us to give them a bottle of breast milk with Rice ceral in it when they were 4 to 6 weeks old. Times change

I really like that hot pick chair cover...very very cute!

She looks more than ready! I was the same way... I couldn't wait for 6 months so Molly started a couple weeks early. No big deal!

So fun!!! I loved getting to feed Lexi. And I agree, if she's ready she's ready! Some docs say it's ok at 4 months or when they start showing signs:) And it looks like it was successful so that's good:) She's getting so big! And she is just adorable. I love her smile.
