Last week, I tried my hand at making homemade (organic, of course) rice cereal for Lee's first food. I either did not follow the recipe correctly, or rice is just too sticky, or I used the wrong grain, but it was clearly beyond Lee's first-time eating abilities. While he seemed to enjoy the taste of the cereal, and playing with the cereal, he did not actually enjoy eating the cereal. This week, I gave in, bought a box of flakes, and he is taking it nicely. He strangely does not have a huge appetite yet, but he takes a killer nap after lunch!
And, fear not; I am not totally discouraged with my baby food-making attempt. Next week, I will be trying my hand at applesauce and some veggies. We should get some more fun pictures from those!
