February 9: I love...

...a baby's first "solid" meal. The expressions on a baby's face when she has that first spoon of milky cereal thrust into her mouth are priceless: so raw, so natural, so hilarious. Lena was chomping at the bit, desperate to eat from a spoon, and had been for a month or so. When we finally decided it was time, she was obviously very excited. 



At first, I didn't think we would get that glorious ICK face because our girl was like--YEAH!!! I've been waiting for this my whole life!!!


But after a little while, I got the reaction I was waiting for.

Wait for it...

Bingo!
Love.

What a sweet! First food always felt sorta bittersweet- but more sweet.

There are times when she looks just like Addie. I think it is mostly in those looks. Fun!

Oh! It takes me back to the first born's first bite of solids. He had an avocado (Dr.'s suggestion!) and if he could have, he'd would have grabbed the spoon and downed the bowl in an instant. Loved avocados then and loves them now.
She's a beauty, too.
What fun.
