6 months + 1 week = Avocado

Olivia ate her first solid food this morning! She has been seriously watching us eat and grabbing for our food and drinks for weeks now, so we decided it was time to start feeding her solids. Of course, most people feed babies rice cereal as a first food, but we decided that avocado would be a good place to start. (We do live in California, after all.)

She did great! I took a tiny bit of avocado and smushed it up really well, put it on the end of my finger, and put it in her mouth. She made a funny face like she didn't know what to do with it, but then she swallowed it right away! We were amazed that she did so well. All in all, she ate maybe a tablespoon of avocado, and only a little bit ended up on her face at the very end.
