Last night, we attempted to give Connor his very first feeding of rice cereal.

It all went down (5-6 tiny nibbles), just as I expected it would... not well.

But that's okay.
We get to do this once a day for the next 30 days.
Then, once a day with baby food and once a day with cereal for the following 30 days.
And then, once a day with finger food, once a day with baby food, and once a day with cereal for another 30 days.

I'm tired just thinking about it.

But, I know he's going to get used to it, get over it, and ultimately love it. (He really doesn't have a choice!)

When you consider where he started, and all that he's been through, every first is a really big deal!
So, rather than thinking about the fights I have ahead of me for the next few days, (staying optimistic) I'm celebrating that we've made it to this very important first!

A video for the grandparentals...

Remember to continue having fun with it. He did great, especially compared to all the other babies I watched going through this on YouTube! He is the only one that knows how to make a gagging sound.

Wait until he spits it back at you! Brian did that with peas - which turned out to be a favorite veggie in his later years! Wonderful video for us to see.
