Om to the nom

This past weekend, Calvin had his first "solid" food!   At his 4-month appointment, his doctor declared him ready (though I was thinking to wait until he was 6 months).  

So we got some baby oatmeal (which, oddly, resembles instant mashed potato flakes), and on Saturday he got his first taste.  It was a big hit!  After the first spoonful, he seemed to have no problem understanding the mechanics of eating from a spoon, and he definitely seemed to enjoy it.  

It was so adorable watching him open his mouth in anticipation of each bite.  He looked so tiny in his high chair, but I know in no time, it'll fit him much better.  

He's since also had some banana, which he also loved.  I never knew what an awesome adventure eating could be!  Oh wait - yes I did.  haha  But seriously, watching him experience these new tastes for the first time has been unforgettably wonderful.  And I can't wait for so many more to come!
