Addie, Breast Milk, and Rice Cereal Round One

What is this mush?

Addie is officially 4 months old, and with this we thought we would give rice cereal a try. When I was at the grocery store yesterday I picked up a box of brown rice cereal and around dinner time when everyone else was enjoying dinner, we gave Addison her first taste of something semi-solid.

I mixed a little bit of the brown rice cereal with breast milk I had pumped so it was more watery than actually chunky and my husband sat down to feed it to her while I snapped away with the camera.

Something pretty typical in our house for these kinds of milestones.

I am a total camera junkie… from first food to first visit with Santa… I always have it ready and available!

Well, I am not sure how to take Addie’s reaction to the cereal.  I am sure she was just flat out confused as to what was going on, but she didn’t cry, and seemed very curious by the new found flavor entering her little mouth.

The faces that she made though were just downright priceless.

Of course I had to put all the pictures together into a slideshow for everyone… because it is just what I do!

I hope you enjoy!
