Rice Cereal

Can you believe Marlee is already 16 weeks? Where has the time gone? It has been so funny to watch her become more aware of her surroundings. She is so alert but she has been since day one. Well we have noticed that very time we eat or drink Marlee will watch our every move. She is watch the fork get the food, the fork going up to my mouth and then she'll even watch me chew. So since she seemed so interested, we tried rice cereal today.

This picture is before we got started. She has no idea what is coming.

Ok, here we go. She didn't no what to think at first. It just sat in her mouth for a few minutes. Then she realized there was something in her mouth and she started smacking her lips. It was so cute.

See here it is just sitting there. But she doesn't seem to mind it.

The spoon wasn't working to well so I tried using my finger. She did much better with this and started to eat it a little more. It was a fun experience but I think we might wait a few more weeks to try it again.

To me, it feels like once they start eating real food, they start becoming a little person. Before that, they are just a bump on a log. She's a cutie!
