Sitting up to Eat

Two very new and exciting things have happened:

1. Today at playgroup, Luke sat up unassisted for the first time. He flopped over after a bit, but he did sit up all by himself! Way to go little man! :)

2. Last night Luke had some rice cereal for dinner. We took a video and some pictures (see below). Originally, I wanted him to be solely breastfed until 6 months. However, Luke was meeting all the criteria for a baby who is ready for solids, so we thought that we would try it out. He can sit up with minimal support, he wants to eat what we are eating, he has been wanting to eat more than I have had to give him for a few days now (probably due to the calorie-burning bouncing), and he does not have a strong tongue thrust reflex which prevented him from taking food.

Oh, he's too cute! And this clip shows how expressive he is becoming!
