Charlotte tried her first solid foods on Tuesday! It's a little bittersweet, as it means she is growing up and is one step closer to weaning...but if Maya has shown me anything it is that solids do not decrease her need for milk! Her first food was a soft pear cut into slices ~ she was interested in playing with it, and tasted it a bit, but didn't really have any interest in actually eating it. I think Maya was more interested in Charlotte eating solids than Charlotte was!
We also tried sweet potato that was boiled and cut into cubes. She mashed it with her hands and slid it off the table to a patiently waiting Jane, but I'm not sure any actually made it into her mouth! :)
