Starting Solids

We're starting Enza on solid food slowly but surely. Up until recently she has been exclusively breastfeed, so we're taking things very slow for her little tummy. Here is a peak at the first time she tried solids. We gave her some sweet potatoe, she did really well! She didn't make any funny faces and she didn't push it out of her mouth. But after a few bites it all came back up, uh oh!

So, we backed off for a few weeks and have started again with a little bit of banana each day, just a little slice mashed up and mixed with a little breastmilk to thin in down. Sometimes she makes this awful gag face, and looks at you like "what in heck are you feeding me?" It's hilarious, and every once in while she shivers like it gives her the chills! She's quite animated and it's so much fun watching her experience the different textures.
