We gave Abbie rice cereal for the first time on Tuesday, and well, you can see for yourself how it went.
"Hmm.. wonder what that is?"
"What the heck am I supposed to do with that?"
"I'm not so sure about this."
"What IS this stuff?"
"I'm not so sure I like this."
"You're not going to try to give that to me again are you?"
"Nope, wasn't any better the 2nd time."
"Maybe 3rd times a charm."
"Nope, 3rd times not a charm and now I'm getting mad."
"Maybe if I feed it to myself...."
"I really don't think I like this stuff."
"Now I'm really letting you know that I don't like it."
"Okay, if you insist, I'll try it again."
"Hm... maybe it's getting a little more tolerable."
"Nope, HATE it!"
"Okay, last try."
"What's in this stuff anyway?"
Overall, the first time wasn't a huge success. She didn't like the rice cereal at all, but I'd heard from several friends that their kids liked oatmeal much better, so we switched to oatmeal on Thursday. I was mainly worried about the rice cereal constipating her, but she didn't really have any problems with it. It didn't hurt her night time sleeping, but it didn't help it either... Bummer. It's amazing how quickly she's learned how to eat from a spoon. By the 2nd day she knew what she was supposed to do, and now she's like a little bird. Too cute. Mark just put up a video of her eating oatmeal and as you can see, she loves the stuff.
