We recently started giving Joshua solid food and he seems to take to it with gusto. We started him off on boiled rice and then we jumped right into Chinese broccoli and carrots. He didn't really like plain mushed boiled carrots, probably because he has Daddy's "I hate boiled carrots because they are sooooo boring" gene. Sun mixed them in with the rice however, and he seemed to accept them readily enough. His diet is still primarily "Mommy Milk" but we are phasing in the "real food" a little bit at a time. He is a neat enough eater for a baby, although today he rather enjoyed turning around in his high chair after each spoonful and slobbering about half of it on the back of his chair. He is also highly skilled in dropping toys and other objects from the high chair within a matter of seconds of receiving them. He are a few pics of our forray into feeding the boy.

To eat from the spoon that Mommy is holding out or to lunge for Daddy with the camera? So hard to decided - I think I'll do both!
Joshua has had just about enough boiled rice and mushed carrots for one meal. Thus he non-verbally communicates that he wants to get out of the chair.
