Let the eating begin!

Last week Ben had his first taste of "real" food. This has been a new experience for our household since Lucy was not interested in table food until she was much older. Ben, however, has been eyeing my fork for months now. And since we tend to let our babies show us when they are ready to move on from breastmilk alone, we knew it was time to let Ben have more than just his mama's milk.

He is definitely getting the hang of it. He gets a bit frustrated, but is happy over all with trying something new. I guess I'll need to invest in some more ice cube trays to make him some food soon.

Here he is right after his first serving. Doesn't he look proud?

By the way, if you want a good book on baby food, check out Super Baby Food. It is really good.
