Today, at five and a half months old, Kai had his first taste of food. Rice cereal mixed with breastmilk. He did surprisingly well for a novice and seemed to really enjoy his meal. He was already opening his mouth for the spoon and didn't spit out quite as much as I had expected. He beat his brothers' first food experiences hands down. For me, it's bittersweet (as are so many things about raising children). There's both excitement and sadness about how he's growing and about the fact that I will no longer be his only source of food. But, it's mostly good news. Cheers, Kai!
