As most of you probably know, our first attempts at feeding Henry solids was not successful. We tried night after night for about a week but he wanted nothing to do with it. After about a week of not trying to get him to eat solids we thought we'd start trying again. For the first five-ten minutes he was not happy and doing the same 'throw my head back, spit out and cry' routine; then all of the sudden, he started taking it. Then he started liking it. He even grabbed at the spoon-yay! So now for about the past two weeks Henry has been having solids for dinner-it's great. His diet now consists of rice cereal, yellow squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, peas and bananas. He is also getting use to those Graduate Puffs, the sweet potatoes flavor which is really great for when we're out and there is nowhere for me to feed him. I'm sad he's growing up so fast, but love that he's learning all these new parts of life. Yum!

Yay for Henry!!! I need to try those graduate puffs - I hadn't even thought about those. I am so glad he likes eating big people food now - be ready for a change in his diapers...ick!
