Autumn's first solid food - Rice Cereal

Autumn ate her first food May 16th. It was rice cereal of course. I didn't feel like waiting to thaw out breast milk so I just mixed it with a little water. She LOVED it! Don't know why kids like that stuff but they sure do. She had a hard time getting the food to the back of her mouth cause babies instinctually push stuff out of their mouths with their tongues. She'll learn and then maybe she will start sleeping through the night!

Autumn is 7 months old as of tomorrow, May 21st. She still can't sit up on her own but she does sit in her bumbo and she just started rolling over a couple days ago, from back to tummy (almost completely). She is really only 4 1/2 months old so she's not doing too bad. She's 13 lbs and something ounces, I forget.

When she smiles, it just warms me up! K.J. loves it also, he often sits over her and sings to her and she smiles and coos away as she looks up at him. It's adorable.

We gave Tripp a banana the first time. He hated it! He never was really into the rice cereal either....
