First (and Second) Solids

We finally started Audrey on solid foods.  Life settled down for just a minute, and we gave it a shot.  She took right to it.  She loves to sit in her high chair and eat cheerios.  I am pretty sure she would sit there all day if I kept the cheerios coming.

One unexpected side affect is that EVERYTHING goes into her mouth now.  One day, without thinking (obviously), I put my bowl of pudding down next to her.  She was thrilled.  She had it all over, but managed to eat some too.

Unfortunately, not everything she puts in her mouth is as conducive to a baby as pudding, and I am having flashbacks to when Amos was a baby.  The "finger swipe" was acceptable back then (all three years ago!) and I must have swiped that kid like 3 times a day.  Thankfully with Audrey we've been lucky so far, but I guess I am going to have to start vacuuming more...
