I remember it seemed to take forever until Addie was old enough to eat "real" food. And yet, in what seems like a blink of the eye, Catherine is five and a half months old, and ready to start solids. More than anything, she showed me her readiness over the past few weeks as she began grabbing for our food, plates and cups. So today, Addie and I were ready to start her on the ever-so-decedent meal of brown rice cereal.
Two things of note: one, Addie seemed to be more excited than Catherine for the big event; and two, Dan's famous "zucchini face" must be hereditary. The first time I made zucchini for him, he looked like he was going to throw it up, and Catherine made a similar face when trying rice cereal for the first time!
