For the last month or so Charlie's grandmothers have been asking when I'd be giving Charlie solid food. I've been putting it off as long as possible. I didn't see the need to further complicate our lives. But over the last week or two all signs were pointing towards solid foods. A call to the pediatrician confirmed my fears. It was time.
We started off with rice cereal, which was okay. After three days with no allergies, we introduced oatmeal. He seems to prefer that... or he's just really getting the hang of this whole eating thing. It didn't take long for him to realize what was happening. He loves to hold onto my right pinky finger and help guide the spoon to his mouth.
Tomorrow we can introduce a new food and I'm trying to decide between avocado or banana. I can't believe our little chunk is old enough for foods!
