Lucy’s Getting Ready to Eat

baby starting solids

With only two weeks to go until our youngest foodie begins eating solids, I figured it was time to bust out the high chair to see how she liked it and whether she could sit up OK.  Success!  She loved being at eye level with me while I cleaned up the kitchen, and happily entertained herself with some Tupperware.

Now I just need to find a way to keep her feeding area pseudo-clean, since food will be slightly messier than Tupperware.  I’m thinking a huge tarp?? 😉

Remember, the fun begins October 1st, so stay tuned!

    This post brought up an idea…you might consider extending your kitchen floor (tile, vinyl, whatever) into the dining area. Considering that Lucy will be schmearing all forms of who knows what into every surface of your house very soon, tile might be a good idea (since you’ll already be in remodel mode)…

    Yes – they’re either completely bald or have enough hair to make bald men jealous 🙂

    Yeah for Lucy. Tyler started with some rice cereal today! It went very well and he loved the spoon and food.

    I agree with Shelly — extend it all the way to the front door. Some cool Pergo?
