At 6 1/2 mos old Axel ate his first solids today. I haven't been in any rush starting him on anything other than my milk b/c doing this I have to admit that he's growing up & I have to admit that in about a year I'll be weaning him completely... sigh. None the less, avocado's watered down with my milk was the first foreign food that entered his sweet little body. And not surprisingly, he ate it with gusto. Laila was a great cheerleader.
