Rice Cereal? Check!

Posted on: March 2, 2010

Well we did it! Rice cereal went down the hatch on March 1st: Niko’s five and a half month mark.  I had been thinking about it for a while, so following my own instincts and with the encouragement of a few other mommy friends, Niko got his first taste of solids yesterday. Solids though? Really? I am not so sure rice cereal can be classified as a solid seeing as what it really is, is a gooey mess! I am pretty sure half of Niko’s portion ended up on his bib, but he seemed to liked it. And how do I know he liked it? There were lots of tell tale signs.

1) I couldn’t seem to serve it up fast enough. If I took too long the ensuing, “ehh, ehh, ehh” could be heard coming from dis darling mouth. And with each “ehh” the pitch, insistence and impatience grew.

2) He gobbled up the whole serving (except for the part that clung to his bib), and even reached for the spoon to try to feed himself.

So I guess our little guy is growing up. I think part of the reason I wanted to hold off on rice cereal was because I don’t want to rush him, and selfishly just want him to be “baby baby” for as long as possible. Secondly, the mess produced by solids: on his face, up his nose, on his chair, in his eyebrows, you name it, well that’s a mess I’m not really looking forward to seeing everyday! But seeing as the mess will be produced by “my little messer”, then I guess it’s not so bad.
