First Foods

The twins turned six months old last week, so the week before we decided to throw caution to the wind and introduce solids.

As it is with most major events, holidays, car trips, early mornings, mid-afternoons, evenings, and anytime I desire a photo of myself with one or more off my offspring, crying greeted the Delicious! and Not At All Gross! rice cereal I served. Lots and lots of crying.

Break out the sharp sticks to poke into your eardrums following your viewing of the following, which documents not only Luci's extreme dislike of her rice cereal, but also her mother's annoying mommy voice and her big sister's love of the spotlight.

After a few days, I introduced sweet potatoes. The skies cleared, birds sang, and unicorns frolicked in my backyard.

Nicholas is much more interested in eating solids than Luci. He gobbles, and she often acts as if I'm attempting to shovel pureed cockroaches down her throat. With Isabella, I introduced 10 or so veggies before any fruits, but this time around, I've already tried banana in an effort to encourage Luci's eating. I think it's working.

Oh, and because I am bored and looking for ways to fill the many empty hours of my day, I've decided to dust off my grandma's ancient food processor once again and make the twins' baby food, just as I did for Isabella. Pulverized green beans, anyone?

    Oh my goodness that last picture of Nicholas is too adorable!!! Those sweet potato smiles are pretty cute too.

    I love that you videoed the cereal. Poor Luci! Won't that be fun to torture her with down the road? :-) Isabella too.

    Very cute update.

    As usual video (at work) doesn't work for me. Grrrr... cute photos of them! Seeing the differences between your kiddos makes me really interested in how different mine will be ... They look like they're doing awesome. Getting so big and what great smiles!! Can't believe it's solids time already.

    Man, they are some gorgeous kids! Even with Isabella's refusal to smile. Gotta love a girl that's consistent!

    My girls have been a little bored with rice cereal as well. So far I've been making the baby food, something I didn't do with LG. I've made peas, carrots, sweet potato, bananas, apples, pears, and I've mixed carrots with apples a time or two. So far it's been a good experience, and it makes me feel good to save money and make a healthier choice for them at the same time. Any tips on green beans? I haven't tried those yet.

    Those pictures are so cute! I can't imagine that rice cereal tastes very good, either. We also made most of Little Elvis' food with a food processor and it worked out really well. I never got the carrots to the consistency in the jars, but he ate them anyway.
