Yum yum

The official readiness signs for solid food:
- sits mostly unsupported
- 5-6 months old at least
- leans towards spoon with open mouth

The Alice readiness signs for solid food:
- grabs spoon as it approaches
- crams spoon into mouth
- squeals and waves arms, getting cereal on back of head
- crams spoon into mouth again
- gives spoon up begrudgingly
- hollers when spoon is not being refilled fast enough
- refuses to let anyone else control the entry of spoon into mouth

After six months of only breastmilk, I can't believe her enthusiasm for food. My little baby is growing up!
