Miss Jane turned 6 months on Tuesday and our pediatrician suggested that we start with vegetables first (supposedly that is how the Europeans do it) and so I gave her peas. Below chronicles her foray into the world of food. Here she is staring it down
She tasted a bite and then for the next bite wanted to do it herself
Not too much escaped early on (only a little bit on her face)
And then some more came out
And then LOTS more
Finally, she just decided that it was better to just blow raspberries.
So, she actually ate the most on Day 1 of peas. Over the past few days, less and less had stayed in her mouth and more has ended up in her bib.Last night, Jane started to cry after only a few spoonfulls. I was talking with my friend today about this issue and she thinks that I might need to water it down even more to start with because she might not be used to the texture yet and to ease into it a bit more. She also suggested doing very liquidy rice cereal with milk. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions??
P.S. she looks so happy and smiling in the later photos but she wasn't all THAT happy eating- she just honestly LOVES the camera :-)
