We've given Reese tastes of our food off and on for a couple months now, but on June 9 we started her on rice cereal. I'm kind of waiting to let her try other baby foods until her next doctor appointment because her doc specifically said to wait to do any foods until she was 6 months - and then we'd go crazy with food - so I don't want him to be too disappointed in me :) She liked it lots. I gave her a little mashed banana in it once and she pulled a couple funny faces but she is surprisingly fond of food [or not surprisingly seeing as I'm her mom.]
We still give her tastes of what we're eating and she LOVES drinking out of a glass. She doesn't like the whole bottle/sippy cup thing so much - but whatever, she'll probably like the sippy cups someday, when she is a Dora the Explorer or Disney Princess fanatic, hahaha.
P.S. Our stake cancelled church this Sunday because of Swine Flu - some people had it at stake conference last week and at least two people in our ward have it. I've never had church cancelled before - crazy.
