Earlier in the week, the doctor gave us the green light for starting solids. We decided to wait until today and let Garrett have a little holiday snack. So, around noon, we put him in the high chair, gave him a spoon of his own to hold on to (because I've heard that these things encourage good table manners) and busted out the rice cereal. The verdict is in. Garrett is a food loving hog. Of course, the first bite came back out all over his face. However, once he realized that it was intended to be swallowed, he started opening his mouth up like a little bird, just waiting for the next blessed bite. Apparently, like his mother, he's just a little more than slightly fond of food.
