Skipper's First Bites
A couple of weeks ago we introduced Skipper to rice cereal--her first solid food! She responded to it well and even tried to help us get the spoon to her mouth faster. She kept trying to lap up the cereal like a dog instead of chew it which made for a bit of a mess. The funniest thing was her tongue--it's so long! With solid foods comes the mixed blessing of independence. A blessing because it makes life much easier in some ways and it's definitely awesome that she's reached this point in development. But it's hard for me as a mom to recognize that it is one of many steps that will ultimately lead to her not needing me as much anymore. Ah, life.
