So Isla tried her first taste of rice cereal last week Monday (October 25th) ! We decided to wait until night time to give it to her so that her Dad could be there. It was a humbling experience as I had a little bit too high expectations, and was determined to start with high chair manners, but it was FUN and I am glad that I got starting solids over with as I had been dreading it!
Here is our first try at solids and high chair manners… as usual, the joke is on me! :) I love the looks on her face when she looks at her Daddy behind the camera!
Clean up after our first attempt.
The second time was the charm! It took us a minute to get started because we thought we might be able to catch the elusive “Fishy Face” that Isla makes so adorably. This video just captures me as a parent in a nutshell! I seriously panic with each new milestone because I take everything so seriously, I fail and I think, I can’t do this parenting thing, but then I calm down, have a good laugh at myself, we try again and the whole family ends up having a good time!
“Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” :)
We are going to get serious on other foods in the next couple of days!
