Mark the Date: Asher’s First Solid Food

We all fed Asher his first bite of solid food: fortified organic rice cereal mixed with breast milk. It was super runny. He seemed rather taken with the idea at first, and really wanted to swipe the spoon. (I vaguely remember that Lucas REALLY wanted to hold the spoon too. I think I used to give him an extra spoon to hold while I fed him.) Rice cereal is pretty boring and Asher’s interest didn’t last very long. Milestone completed. Let the record show.

I guess I now need to get out my baby nutrition and baby food recipe books. It’s time to review the principles and start steaming veggies, freezing little food bubes, and pumping more breastmilk to mix with the food to make it the right consistency.
