first bite {griffin eats cereal}

I finally got around to letting Griffin try out some cereal. He has been grabbing and grabbing at food for awhile now. He seemed pretty interested and ready. His pediatrician always says we can start cereal at four months but I am lazy and like to wait until closer to six months. It is just one more thing, you know?
 Look at the excitement on his little face!

I thought that Levi would be right next to Griffin wanting in on the action, but he was too busy chowing down on his macaroni and peas. He must have been hungry because he just watched from afar. Totally unlike him.
 There is the first bite. And now all of a sudden my baby is big enough to eat cereal!
He did pretty good except he is so wiggly and kept trying to turn around. He is a mover.
 He sure didn’t let us down with the my-first-bite facial expressions. 
It is still undecided on whether or not he likes his cereal. Right now he just seems to be gagging it down. Just wait until you taste something with a little more flavor, little man. 

 Did you notice his super-cute bowl. It is from Sarah + Abraham and I love it. I just might be giving one away (and much more) next week…hint, hint. You won’t want to miss this giveaway!
That first bite is now checked off the milestone list. Six months is coming way too fast!
