Fruit Loops or Cheerios?

Well, neither actually, but this weekend Marin started cereal. OH my! She is a totally different eater than her brother (always has been). He gobbled...she, well, I guess you could say she's "savoring" it. It's taking her much longer to figure out what to do with it. She just lets it sit on her tongue. How do you teach a baby to swallow? This is her response to her first tastes on Saturday.

Not so thrilled to say the least. She literally cried at it and while I was trying to feed it to her the first three times. I was beginning to think she'd never get it...until TONIGHT (Sunday)...this was her response after eating almost a full tablespoon of her barley cereal.

She was talking, laughing, and smiling during and afterwards! Yea! She still lets it sit in her mouth for awhile, but I think she ate more than she wore (and as you can see, she wore plenty) so, in my book, that's a step in the right direction.

No......she's not old enough to eat cereal already, is she?????? I don't believe it! She's growing up too fast!
