Jacob has begun to eat solid foods as of a couple of weeks ago. The jury is still out on whether or not he's a fan. We're trying to go "by the book" as far as starting with rice cereal and then graduating to veggies, giving each one a week before trying the next. Aaron bought me a food mill for Mother's Day and when my parents were here last week, my mom bought me a bamboo steamer, so I'm having all kinds of fun steaming/mashing/grinding/pureeing vegetables. So far, Jake's had squash and carrots. He doesn't like either as much as the rice cereal, but we're giving it time and just having fun!
