Sophie has been staring intently at us when we've been eating lately -- particularly if I am eating a cookie. This made us think that she was ready for some solid food herself. After all, she is a striking young lady of five months (heck, that's almost half a year!).
So, with a small bowl of rice cereal, a little bit of formula, an oversized plastic-lined bib and a rubber-coated spoon, we gave the Sophiebean her first solid meal.
Since more ended up on her chin than in her mouth, perhaps it's still too soon....
