Yep, it's been a big week in our house! We have a big girl on our hands now because she is officially a rice cereal eater!!
Well, "eater" may be a stretch, she's more like a "taster or a licker!"
She obviously had no idea what we were so excited about!
But we could not stop laughing at how tiny she was in her high chair! We had to pull those straps as tight as they go :)
We both took a turn feeding her, it was the classic "first baby/first time parents" moment! The video camera was rolling, we were stopping constantly to take pictures...I would have loved to have known what Ava was thinking about all of it :)
I think it's safe to say that her overall experience was a good one! She just didn't know what on earth we were so giddy about :)
I think she smiled at us just because we were grinning from ear to ear like two fools in her face!!
Getting her to open her mouth was easier than I thought, she seemed to know what to do with that spoon!
But that doesn't mean she liked it!! I love this face, she made it with every bite :)
Then she tried to grab the spoon herself...
And then she grinned and we started the whole thing all over again!
We can't wait to see her eat oatmeal, veggies, fruit, etc., but not for awhile! Right now we're just working on getting used to our new routine, sitting in the high chair, opening our mouth and swallowing something! One step at a time though.
And make no mistake, we're enjoying every single step!!
