Baby Buffet

The twins' pediatrician had recommended waiting until 6 months to start solids.  We are so close though, and I was excited to get them started.  I don't know why.  Why is it that shoveling mush into a child's mouth for the first time brings such happiness?

The delicacy today was breast milk mixed with a bit of rice cereal. 

First bites:

Reid on top, Cort on the bottom right.

Thinking it over. 

Hmmmm, as true to their individual natures, wonder which one likes eating more?

Yup, Reid definitely likes eating more.  Chunk!

Look at the two of them.  Like two little old men sitting in their armchairs, watching a funny tv show, with faces covered in oatmeal.

Lest I leave someone out, here is a little chocolate mousse before:

And after:

Yes, we still put our 3 year old in the high chair.  Believe me, I know this is wrong.  But look how messy he is!  Since he doesn't seem to question the confinement, we're cramming him in there just as long as we possibly can.  Or at least until 5th grade.

My daughter was in the high chair until age 4! We had to keep her up higher than the dogs' noses :) Your boys are beautiful!

Is there anything more adorable than a baby eating his first solids? Why, yes . . . two babies eating their first solids. SO CUTE!

Very cute.

I *wish* we could still fit Huck in the high chair. It won't accomodate his gut. ;)
