Trying cereal

Okay, I really didn't want to try Patrick on cereal this early, as he's only just over 3 months, and "they" generally say to start 4-6 months. But, he has been avidly watching us all eat for more than a week, and recently started grabbing at my plate at dinner. Not only that, but in the evenings just nursing doesn't seem to satisfy him. So, I broke down and tried it a few days ago.

Patiently waitingNot so sureBingo!!
And Erin wanted to see what all the commotion was, so decided to get back up even though we'd already put her to bed.

I have given him cereal every evening for the past 3 days and yesterday he was doing SO WELL with it. He was opening his mouth for spoonfuls and swallowing most of it. So even though I didn't want him to be, he is apparently ready for it.
