Everly already seems to be a fan of food. We started her on “solids” early after it was suggested by her doctors as a way to see if it would help the reflux issue. She has watched anyone eating around her like a hawk since about 4 months.
We started her off with avocado and then proceeded with veggies. She got her first taste of fruit when we visited boys camp at Anvil. She tried some applesauce and loved it. We have tried a few other fruits and meats and she is not a big fan of them. I don’t really mind if she is like her Daddy, and a big fan of veggies. Nothing compares to the reaction we got to rice cereal.
Jason was at work when I decided to let her give it a try. I really wish I had filmed some of it on video. She hated the stuff. I eventually surrendered and just let her play in it and let her practice using her spoon. She likes to hold the spoon backwards, whatever makes her happy. She had a great time just making a mess.
My favourite was when she held out her spoon as if victorious over the battle against rice cereal, and then chucked her spoon to the floor. This thankfully happened after I had cleaned her up. So much personality in one little girl. Next time we try rice cereal I am going to mix it in with something to see if that improves things for her. Otherwise its onto millet and oat cereal.
