We decided to start Lydia on solids early. Why? Because even with WIC buying us 9 cans of formula a month, we still end up buying 2 more. And in case you forgot, they cost $25 each. So solids it is. We figured a few weeks early won't kill her. And if her reaction is any indication, she appears to think we've been holding out on her! She's loving eating foods, and it's so cute to watch her open her mouth like a little baby bird =) I tried to get it on video, but of course she never shows off properly when there's a camera in her face! But it's still pretty cute.
