at 5 1/2 months, i finally gave into my husband and we fed our ds some rice cereal on tuesday. he's been sitting up on his own for 3 weeks now and eyeballing our food and drink for about 2 months so i gave in. i can't believe how much our son liked the cereal. he didn't make any strange faces and after he finished a spoonful he was reaching for more. it was so cute! i guess things are really going to move fast now. i can't believe he's almost 6 months already, and now we're getting into solid foods. he's growing too fast!
