Aly's First Experience with Food

Our little Piglet has been sucking down formula like a champ since literally minutes after she was born, but in our last visit to the doctor, our new pediatrician Dr. J (yes that's actually what he's called by his office staff and nurses) recommended that we start trying to feed Aly baby oatmeal.  The main purpose is to get her used to the idea of eating from something other than a bottle, but the oatmeal should also help her mess her pants a little more often.  As parents we're thrilled for more poppy diapers, but we decided to go for it.  Today Rachel fed Aly her first spoonfuls of food and this is how it went.



Okay, so she's not exactly a natural when it comes to eating, but at least she keeps it interesting.

First time with food and already trying to feed herself. She's so advanced! ;)

We watched the video and Joshua says, "Baby Awexa, so cute." We all think she is pretty cute.

That was a good try on her part! I can't believe how fast she is growing!

Katelyn really enjoyed watching her!

I think the fact that she wants to feed herself is less about her being "advanced" and more about her being stubborn, I mean strong-willed. She gets that from Rachel.
