Second Attempt

I thought I'd try the rice cereal again today. didn't go over so well. He ate it just fine, but pretty soon, he was crying once again. He seemed to like it better today. I mixed it with breastmilk instead of water. It was still pretty thin though, which made it rather easy for him to swallow.

He actually did a really good job eating. Hardly spit anything back out (well, except for the picture above, but that was it). He did pretty good opening up for the spoon, too.

I don't know what it was that made him start crying. He was in a kind of fussy mood before I started, so maybe that's all it was. Or maybe he just really doesn't like rice cereal. By the end of our eating attempt, he was arching his back something fierce, trying to get off my lap.

Oh well. I guess we'll wait another couple days before trying again.

Your next kid is going to be so jealous of how many more pictures you have of Caleb.

It's amazing how quickly they grow though. I can't believe he's ready for rice cereal already.

For some reason, this picture of Caleb reminds me of Howie Mandel! I don't think it's the cereal drooling out of his mouth, because I've never watched Howie eat. I dunno.
