Brynnleigh got to try rice cereal for the first time on Owen's fourth birthday 2/20/11.
She was not sure what to think of it at first. She kinda ate it...and kinda spit it out all at the same time. We had to give her a bite, then give her the bottle so she could get it down.
It was a tad messy, but I think with practice, she'll get it down. (And since I'm writing this a month later...I can tell you...she got it down, and takes her entire bowl of cereal before drinking her bottle now!)
