Alivia has really been acting like she is ready for solids. She freaks out and starts panting like a dog when she sees food. And she starts frantically grabbing at my spoon when I am eating. So I mixed up a delicious concoction of bland rice cereal and warm formula. Yum-o!

At first she got really excited, but she pushed it all back out with her tongue. We tried several times, but she didn't really get any. The best part though was when big sister saw me feeding baby and wanted to try.

She said "Want oh-mill!" I guess it looked like oatmeal to her. I told her that it was baby's food and I didn't think she'd like it. I guess I said the magic words because she really put up a big fuss over not getting "oh-mill". So I put some on a spoon and let her try it. She said "Yum!" and opened wide. The texture hit her first and she gagged. Then the taste of the formula hit her and she shook her head and ran to the garbage can yelling "No! No!" I felt bad laughing because it must have really been gross. But she learned her lesson!

Then I went to feed baby more and she came running over yelling "No baby! No eat it!" Hahah! I'm such a mean mommy!

I nearly had that same reaction when I first tried rice cereal and formula back when Logan was a baby. BLECH! The things we make babies eat! Poor big sister though. Too funny she didn't want her sister to eat it.

Ha! That's exactly what Xan did... with added drool. But, he was having nothing to do with the grain cereals until he was a bit older. He spat it right out... and I can't say I blame him. He was ALL about the fruits, veggies & sweet potatoes, though!

That's too funny about Chloe.
