First Taste

When we went for Max's four-month checkup, the pediatrician gave us the go-ahead
to start little man on solids. My head started spinning just thinking about all the complication this would add to our daily routine - the timing of it, making my own, what to start, etc, etc.
So I decided to hold off just a little bit longer.

Well, little man has been eyeing our food for a while now
and definitely acts interested in what we keep putting in our pie holes. He watches us so intently!
So on Sunday morning, we decided to go ahead and give it a whirl...

And whaddya know, he likes it! We're still getting the hang of the whole
eating from a spoon thing, but that will come in time. :)

The pediatrician also suggested we give Max a sippy cup 
with a tiny bit of water and ice (for noise) so he could get more familiar with it.

As you can see, we're still working on which end is up. :) 
Also, I think the cool part at the bottom where the water is feels good on his teething gums.
No teeth yet! But we feel sure they will poke their little heads through any day now.

In other news, little man is rolling both ways now (thanks, Doc, for helping with that skill!). The other morning he woke up earlier than usual and his cry sounded a little different. When I went into the nursery to check on him, I discovered he was on his tummy! Since then, we have found him in a different position (on his tummy, side, up against the crib slats) every time we go in to get him up. We're in for it now...

So we are all getting our first tastes these days - Max, of a new way to eat, and us, of a more independent baby. He is growing so fast - I can't believe he'll be five months old in less than a week!
