this’ll be fun

Only a few weeks after Claire made it abundantly clear that she was interested in being more than a spectator when it came to solid food, we finally went out today and purchased a highchair in which to begin the grand experiment. We actually ended up using a Bumbo (as made famous in Chris’ desk baby photos) and sitting with Claire on the floor, but I’m sure I’ll be assembling that chair tomorrow. She was quite enthusiastic about the process, even when she was just playing with the spoon while Tyla decided how thick a mixture it should be, and ate all that we prepared — perhaps 1 tsp of rice cereal powder in 2 tbsp of formula? It’s an art, not a science.

Afterward, I gave her a bath, because rice cereal is pretty sticky. Who knew?
