We took the plunge on Saturday, and started Abby on "solid" foods. It wasn't nearly as messy as I'd expected it to be, and she seemed to like rice cereal. The new textures of the cereal and the spoon were a bit strange to her at first.
Abby slept through the night last night! She slept from 8 to 7:30 this morning. She did wake up once around 1ish, but she was back to sleep by the time I had a bottle ready. We haven't fed her cereal since this first time because I got busy with homework yesterday, so I don't think it's related to that.
"Daddy, WHAT is Mommy feeding me?!"
