Ellie's first solids


We intended to hold out until Ellie was six months old, but we relented five days short of that goal and gave Ellie her first taste of rice cereal on Thursday, June 16, 2005. It was a spur of the moment decision to go ahead and do, but Ellie had been showing signs of readiness for solids for several weeks, including intense interest in what we were eating.
