so it only took about a month, but big O LOVES eating cereal now. i don't know if you have to switch over to the oatmeal cereal or not, but we are just sticking to the rice cereal. and it's brown rice. he loves it just like his mommy loves brown rice.
as soon as i put him in his high chair he knows what is coming. he starts kicking his legs. i pour out the cereal, put in the water, and AS SOON as i start stirring he gets REALLY excited. wiggeling all over and talking. its the funniest thing ever.
but eating cereal is not good enough. he wants to feed himself. which usually results in a mid-morning bath. but who cares. we are covered in cereal, probably taste really good, and are having a great time.
