A couple of weeks ago we started giving Renee solid foods! It took her about a week before the food we put in her mouth actually ended up in her stomach. But she's got the hang of it now. She's eating fruits and vegetables and sometimes rice or oatmeal cereal (the cereals constipate her, so we don't give it to her very often - sorry if that was TMI!).
It's strange how changing one little thing like what we feed her has opened up a whole new can of worms on baby care. Before, I just nursed her and we were done. Now, I have to defrost her food (I made a whole bunch and froze it in small portions), strap her in her high chair, put a bib on her, then feed her, then clean up the mess.
This should give you an idea of what kind of a mess I'm talking about:
How does that happen you wonder? Like this: Mom puts food in baby's mouth. Baby puts hand in mouth. Baby gets food all over hand. Baby rubs hand all over face. Mom takes picture while laughing at food covered baby face :D
