As I mentioned last week, at Branner's 4 month check-up, we were given the green light to slowly introduce solid food into his diet. I tried to do that last week with rice cereal mixed with formula, but he really had no interest. Apparently, it wasn't up to his standards. His palate is a little more refined. So, after adding some banana baby food into the mix, we had MAJOR success. He loves his banana rice cereal! How do I know this, you may ask? Well, when I am feeding it to him, he encourages me to give him more by making noises at me and sometimes grabbing the spoon and putting it in his mouth. He takes after his mommy and daddy--everyone knows how we love to eat!
