Emily started rice cereal about 2 weeks ago. She was showing a lot of interest in our food, drinks, etc. and was ready to enjoy her own. She is still working on mastering the spoon but she gets about 50% of it in her belly I think. She is growing up so fast! We were going to wait until 6 months to start, but we ended up starting at just past 5 months with just one meal of cereal a day. Soon we'll switch to 2 meals, then 3 meals a day.
