She's Growing Up SO Fast!

Today was a(n) historic day in the life of Kaia.

She had her first solid food...that's right....we gave her rice cereal this morning :).

It makes me a little teary...I have nourished every ounce of her little being all by myself...from the food I ate that helped her grow in utero, to the milk I've provided her ever since she's been in the world. I have helped her grow to her (approximate) 16 pounds ALL BY MYSELF!

So, it was a BIG DEAL for me to give her her first rice cereal. We waited until 5 1/2 months....research until recently said that Breastfeeding solely for 6 months was optimal, but within the last month, I've heard other research that says if you wait TOO LONG babies can develop other problems. So, I kinda compromised and decided to go with 5 1/2 months.

She was definitely ready!

Here are the pictures of her first feeding, as well as a video of her first spoonful.

Brett was so cute...he kept patting her head, saying "Good job, Kaia!", like he was giving her moral support.
