From this: To this:
Yes, she is eating a pickle. In fact, despite the warning from our pediatrician not to give her anything other than formula before six months we have been giving her little tastes of things for a while now. Pickles are a big hit, as is miso soup, and avocados. Squash, and applesauce are not. Ryan and I are now reading all the books, looking at all the recipes, and trying to figure out just was to prepare to give her what she needs, and teach her to eat well. We are going to try not to do prepackaged baby food, which means our diets will probably change too. After all, Meg can hardly eat an entire bag of peas on her own.
Eating isn't the only new thing in Meg's life, six months opens up a whole new world of possibilities. For instance, she can now go swimming. Not alone, of course, and certainly not with sharks, but Mommy and Me swim classes are now an option. Music together and Little Gym also start classes at six months. I figure it's never too early to over-schedule our child.
Meg is now sitting on her own, talking up a storm, and chewing on anything that she can get in her mouth. Her sleeves are a favorite, as are burp clothes. Ryan is actually convinced she ate one of the cloths whole, or if she hasn't yet, she will soon. Well, I guess it's fiber.
Oh, how we love this girl.
