First Food

Arin and I were eating an avocado with our lunch today, so I smashed up a little and let Ella try it too. I am not planning on feeding her (other than nursing of course!) on a regular basis until she is six month old (which will be here before I know it!!), but I have read that they can start on avocados between 4-6 months, so I just wanted to see how she would react to it. She made all of the funny faces that babies usually make with food for the first time, but she also kept wanting more! I only gave her the equivalent of a babyspoon of two full of avocado.

What a perfect first food! O has always loved avocados, and I plan for avocados to be the next baby's first food. I made the mistake of starting O with rice cereal and bananas :(
