First Food

Last week at his 4month check-up, Dr. Brennan suggested we start Wes on rice cereal. Now, Savanna has been waiting for this day ever since the baby shower where we got a cute box of baby spoons and food and such. She seriously has been asking every week or so when he is going to have his first food. Even though we got the go ahead, I wanted to wait until after Camporee. Then we had to time it so Grandma Beth could be here... wouldn't want her to miss out on the fun. Poor Savanna, I bought the cereal on Tuesday- it's been sitting on the island for days...she was about to bust with excitement! Thanks goodness, yesterday was finally the day!

Wes wasn't too sure about it, I'm sure two cameras snapping and everyone hanging over didn't help... but he was a trooper and maybe ate 2 or 3 spoonfuls total. He was pretty funny with his tongue trying to figure it out! We ended up taking him out of the bumbo and I held him and "chased" the cereal with a bottle and he was much happier... in fact it wore him right out! Silly boy, welcome to the world of solid foods. Or, as Kelly said "semi-solid" food!
