We gave Owen rice cereal for the first time last night. He was so funny! I put a little on his tray so he could touch it and see what it was with his hands first. He investigated it enough to know he wanted it in his mouth and not on the tray. As soon as I got the spoon in his range for the first bite he grabbed for it and tried to stick it in his mouth. He would laugh, grab the spoon, open up wide and pull it in to his mouth. He had us all laughing. When he was done he went face down on his tray and tried to eat any left overs. He's always loved his food and been a good little eater. Seems like a good way to ring in the new year, for a baby!
