At Elyse’s 4-month check-up we were given the go-ahead to start her on solids. The doctor recommended starting with rice cereal, and then working up to vegetables and fruits. While most people jump at the opportunity to start feeding their baby something other than formula or breastmilk, I wasn’t so excited. She is just growing up too fast! Since the consensus is that it’s ok to start solids anytime between 4 – 6 months, I wasn’t in any hurry.
We did rice cereal sporadically over the past few weeks, but it wasn’t all that exciting. I figured if we were going to have to take this next step, we might as well try something fun. So, yesterday I mashed up some avacado and we gave it a shot. She loved it!

(Please ignore the mess in the background. The house has been a disaster since we got back last week.)
Part way through the bowl.
All done! It was num-yummy!!
Today I made homemade apple sauce…she enjoyed that, too, but not nearly as much as the avacado!
