Jesse is 5-months old now. We've just started him on semi-solids. We're feeding him a nice little rice cereal once a day and whaddya know, he's lovin' it!
Most people say that babies can start on semi-solids when they hit the 4-month mark. But these days nutritionists are saying that babies can afford to wait a little longer. Apparently, starting him on other foods can sometimes lead to allergies. Ugh! And this can lead to all kinds of complications. So despite having a strong urge to sneak him a sip of beer or coke behind Mommy's back, I'm gonna have to refrain. :)
Anyway, he's loving his cereal. Which is good. But he's loving it a little bit too much, which can get quite messy. Mae was feeding him when he suddenly grabbed the spoon to help himself. "You people are too slow!" he seemed to be saying as he licked furiously away at the spoon. So, as you can imagine, he's got cereal all over his face, hands, clothes and feet. Yes, feet!!! Hehheh!
That's my boy. Messy eater, just like Daddy.
