It’s been a little over a week and the verdict is in … solids are great! I’m eating two meals of rice cereal a day now (one in the morning at daycare, and one in the evening with Mommy and Daddy). I open my mouth up wide and bring my head to the spoon as quickly as I can (sometimes a little too quickly that I slam my cheek or nose into the spoon – oops!). But, I’ve mastered swallowing the food down without spitting any out. I really like eating solids and can’t wait to start my next food. Mommy said orange food is next, so maybe some carrots or squash from Grandma & Grandpa Heppner’s garden!
This week I’d also like to report that I now have two teeth! My very first tooth on the bottom poked through April 2nd! A few days later my second tooth on the bottom made its debut! Mommy thinks that a top front tooth may poke through in the next couple days too. She told Daddy that she felt a little something in there, so I’m sure it won’t be long and I’ll have three teeth! Wahoo!
So, how am I handling getting these new pearly whites? Like a champ of course! I don’t cry, fuss, or wake up during the night. I’m trying to be a trooper and just chew on one of the many teethers that Mommy got for me and drool … a lot!
Check out my two new pearly whites (on the bottom) – can you see them?! A couple new teeth and messy face after eating! 🙂
