I think it may be time for solids...

I've been wanting to wait until 6 months to start solids with Buggy, but I think it might be time think about starting. She's 5 months old, so it's not like its that far off, but it honestly might be time. Why, you ask? Well, let me tell you.

Tonight, we were watching the Food Network and their special about Thanksgiving dinner, or something like that. Buggy was in the exersaucer playing with her toys, eating the flowers, beating the bees, general merriment all around. Suddenly, she looked up and her gaze locked on to the screen. This isn't all that uncommon. She likes to watch the moving lights and colors.

However, what was new was the fact that while staring at the screen, she started smacking. Not a soft, gentle smacking of the lips. Oh no. Loud cud chewing, smacking, and slurping her lips.

A commercial came on and I waited. She stopped the smacking and continued on about her playing. That is, until a Pizza Hut commercial came on and she screached loudly and lunged forwards as if to grab a slice of the savory dough.

Alas, I believe I will be making a call to the pediatrician's in the morning and seeing if she thinks now would be a good time.

Solid we come!

  1. Good luck! Starting solids is such a fun yet frustrating time. It for sure takes more time and it's really messy, but it's also fun to watch how excited they get.

    I loved watching how excited Em would get when we would try a new food!

    Oh and the solids poops are nasty. Bring a hazmat suit and prepare for the worst!!!
