Abbi's First Food

We finally bit the bullet and started feeding Abbi solids. I have been wanting to put it off, but decided now was the time.

I have to say, I thought she would jump right in and love it. She has been watching us eat for the past little while, getting that look on her face that says - I want some of that now! So we were both a little surprised when she hated that first time eating solids! She barely took a few bites, and actually ended up gagging herself at the end and throwing most of it up. But it was kind of funny at the same time - I have to admit!

Josh ended up giving her the spoon to see if she would like it better if she put it in her mouth herself. It didn't work. I have to laugh, because she'll put everything in her mouth and never gets that sour face, but when she finally gets food, she acts like it's the worst thing in the world!

Luckily, the second day went much better and she got the hang - and the taste - of it quickly!

I do have to apologize for both the bad pictures and bad video. I'm kind of bummed. I had my camera on manual setting and handed it to Josh to take pictures, not realized I didn't change the setting. So I was only able to salvage a few pictures, and they still aren't very good. And then I didn't have the video set up in a very good place, and my arm and hand are in the way for most of it. And you can obviously tell it was not only Abbi's first time eating solids, but it was my first time feeding a baby with a spoon!

**Ok, sorry - no video. I've been trying to upload it for about 10 hours now, and it won't - I'll try again another time...

awww.. poor thing! I can't beleive she didnt like it. Maybe she'll enjoy something like sweet potatoes more! I have some in the oven right now because we just ran out! :) Hopefully she'll get the hang of it soon...
p.s. Max is going to LOVE this stage! It's always fun to be the one that gets to clean up the baby!

She is just so darn cute.

That first bite of food is always so funny.

And I can't comment on the post above, but man do you have your hands full! She is SO determined. I bet she's walking in no time!
