Natalie is so interested in food these days. She watches us eat with fascination, and has made multiple attempts to grab some of whatever it is that we're eating for herself. As there is a history of both diabetes and food sensitivities in Jen's family, we're trying really hard to make it to six months before starting her on solids. Today, a friend mentioned that she gave her son ice in a mesh feeder before she started solids with him. Since we had a mesh feeder already, we gave it a try tonight.
What we didn't catch on film was the excited way she grinned and wiggled for 45 minutes afterwards. As far as she was concerned, she had started solids, and it was goooood.
