She Nut's First Meal of Rice Cereal

I have been trying to find a good time to feed She Nut rice cereal for the first time for the past couple of weeks. When we were all sick, the day would get away from me before I ever got the chance. She has started to wake up again for middle of the night feedings, so I figured it was definitely time to start feeding her cereal. It was so hard to get pictures of her, she is such a little piglet she would get upset as soon as she swallowed her cereal and was screaming for more. When she wants to eat there is no stopping her. For the past month or so, if I feed her with a bottle, she will reach up and grab it out of my hands if I don't give it to her quick enough.

I gave her a couple of tablespoons of cereal mixed with some formula and she finished if off in a quick couple of minutes. I had to make her more and she scarfed it down and still wasn't done. She could have kept going, but I was worried about her tummy, so I made her a bottle. This baby girl loves to eat! It looks like I will be making carrots, sweet potatoes and squash for her and tossing them in the freezer this week.

She Nut is sitting in her highchair for the first time.
Up until last night this highchair used to belong to Little Nut Nut.
Looks like it is time to pull out the bench for the dinning room table
since E Nut has been kicked out of his booster seat so Little Nut Nut
has a place to sit at the table now.

She Nut got so excited with her first couple of bites
she started babbling about it.

After a few bites, she grabbed the spoon out of my hand
and fed herself. I had to pry it out of her hands to give her more.

She had her first day in the bouncy saucer the other day and last night she started eating solids. Oh how quickly time passes us by. Before I know it, she will be self feeding everything.

She is so beautiful! And I'm so jealous that she enjoyed her cereal. None of my kids ever did that. Most of the time I ended up wearing it or cleaning it off the walls.
