We tried some solids again yesterday. I decided I was ready to see if he was ready. It did seem to go better this time. Although when I fed him today, he sort of passe about the whole thing. I'll just try again tomorrow. And instead of going the rice cereal route, I decided to make some homemade pear sauce. I actually thought it was delicious - especially with the addition of some vanilla extract and a little bit of balsamic. (Thank you, Smitten Kitchen)
He actually opened his mouth right up. Here he is trying to attack the spoon.
I think we're doing apples next.
