We have only tried feeding Emme Claire rice cereal with a spoon a few times. The first couple of times didn't go so well. She wasn't sure what was going on and I didn't force her to eat it. Last night we tried for probably the third time and it went much better. The cereal was mixed with apple juice so it tastes good and this time she was very into it. She couldn't get enough cereal! She was acting like a lil' piglet and after a bunch of the cereal made it up her nose she was even snorting like a lil' piglet. It was so funny! And I couldn't shovel the food in fast enough for her. She even tried grabbing the bowl and stuck her head over in it. We were laughing so hard! And she made a huge mess. It was all over her and it got on me too. Here are some pics Brian took.
