Shayla starting cutting her two bottom teeth just before she turned 4 months old, and has been obsessed w/ our food even prior to that.
She was very cute when we ate, drooling and smacking her lips and trying to grab our food. I felt kind of guilty eating in front of her!
We were going to hold out until she was 6 months old to start solids, but when she started to eat (and poop out!) paper products a week ago (just shy of 5 months old), we broke down. She took to the solid food immediately and has eaten every scrap of banana and apple that we've given her.
It was actually kind of weird how matter-of-fact she was about it. We had the video camera going for the first "meal" and were waiting for her to spit it out, or make a face, or be delighted or something. She proceeded to play w/ the cat and a toy w/ one hand while eating banana off of my finger as if she'd been doing it all along.
I'm going to wait on grains and just do fruits and vegetables for now. She is delighted to be eating and sucks on her little Munchkin feeder in my lap while we eat dinner.
