We started with Earth's Best Organic Rice Cereal. According to the box you mix one tablespoonful of cereal with 3-4 tablespoonfuls of breast milk. Yum! Actually it didn't look appetizing at all, but hey, she doesn't know the difference, right? She made the funniest faces when we gave it to her. She looked so excited for the spoon and opened her mouth right up only to look so confused when it actually got in her mouth. So funny! I'm thinking one tablespoonful actually made it into her little tummy, the rest was one her face, on her bib and then went down the sink as she lost interest about 5 minutes in. Regardless, it is pretty exciting. Rob is already planning all the gourmet baby foods he will be making her. We have all sorts of fruits and veggies that we grow in our yard just waiting to be turned into baby food for Lucy. Next week we're hoping to start bananas as Trader Joe's sells their organic bananas for super cheap!
