First Rice Cereal

So, we had another big milestone yesterday.  Luke had his first taste of solid food although I wouldn't really say it was solid.  He got to try rice cereal.  He appeared to like it but got frustrated very quickly because it wasn't a constant flow as with a bottle.  I made it a rather liquid consistency so Luke basically just slurped it off of the spoon.  He had maybe 15-20 spoonfuls and then he was done and ready for some milk.  We tried again today and I made it just slightly more solid but he finished all that I fixed today although there was still frustration.  The doctor said to gradually work up to more solid and a couple of times a day before moving on to fruits and vegetables.  Maybe on Thanksgiving he can have a taste of some peas or carrots- YUMMY!
