Noe's First Solid Food

Now, let me begin by saying that "solid" is a bit of a stretch. The instructions on the box of rice cereal said to mix one tablespoon of cereal with two tablespoons of breast milk. That creates a meal approximately the consistency of two tablespoons of breast milk.

Noe seemed rather unenthusiastic about the concoction. The ratio seemed to be one spoonful in, 0.9 spoonfuls out. Actually, the conversation went something like this:

Jen: "I don't think she likes it."

Noe: "Oh no, it's good. Just needs a little salsa!"

Seems she's been hanging around a bit with Grandpa Gary.

Also, please note the lovely new high chair, an indirect gift from Noe's great aunt and uncle, Betty and Dick. Very stylish!

In the interest of full disclosure, the picture of Jen with spit-up on her forehead was a few minutes before the feeding, not after. But you have to love it.

And finally, a note to those of you in warmer climes: Enjoy it! Current temperature in Iowa City: a balmy 1. Forecasted overnight temperature tonight: -17. That's cold, baby.

She's BEAUTIFUL! Such wonderful, happy pictures. I didn't remember Iowa City being a place of so many huge smiles. I especially like Noe helping you rake the leaves. The power of fiction!

Great catching up yesterday...
