Ellie had her first solid food! She seemed to really enjoy it. She even tried "helping," which means grabbing the spoon and feeding herself! She was pretty good at it too, she actually made it in her mouth some of the time :)
It turns out she is not quite ready for solids yet, though. She liked the rice cereal, but she isn't hungry enough for it quite yet. We will try again in a few weeks :) It sure is fun to see her experience new things though! Watching her encounter the world for the first time with such wonder and awe, it is so sweet. This month was filled with a few other firsts, including the first time her toes touched the grass and the first time her toes were dipped in a pool! She just loves new experiences. She is so much more interactive with the world around her everyday. She smiles and coos at all the new faces she meets, and is such a happy baby. I just love her!
