Right after Nick's 4 month check up, we tried Nick on solid food starting with rice cereal. But Nick just wasn't ready for solid food yet, so we just stopped for a while. A few weeks ago Nick became enthralled watching anyone eat. We decided it was time to try again, and Nick was ready! He was woofing down rice cereal like he was in the hot dog eating contest on Coney Island.
So now we are beginning to try other foods that mommy has cooked and pureed for him. Of course the suspense is torture because the Dr. says you need to wait 3 to 5 days after each new food is introduced to isolate allergic reactions if they occur. So this Monday while we were at Deenie's for dinner with Nick's great Aunt Betty, Nick tried peas. He liked them OK but not as much as cereal. He ate plain peas again on Tuesday and then last night he had a pea and rice cereal swirl.
Today I am making him apple sauce with yummy gala apples. Hopefully I can put a list on the blog somewhere of all the foods he tries and his first reactions. Nick is almost as excited about eating as Mommy and Aunt Gaines are about cooking for him!
