We started solids today, or should I say tried to. DD is 7 1/2 months and we figured it is time. She has picked up 2 more feedings a day since turning about 6 months.
So I bought a beautiful avocado, cut it up, and placed it on the tray of the highchair. DD thought this was great fun and proceeded to squish it up and explore. Finally one got one in her mouth and her big smile immediately went to horror. Her eyes watered up and she pushed the little avocado out. Then all the milk that was in her stomach, because I had just nursed her, decided to come up too.
Oh well, it was a fun for DH and I. We now have some great pictures and a video to go along with it. Maybe next week we shall try bananas.
