Poor Jeremy: you'd think that I child's first taste of solid food would be the day's lead story no matter what. Yesterday, it was so clearly not. But, indeed, after the tumult had ended and with Harry returning to the delightful little person we always think we know, Jeremy's mother decided he was ready. Actually, with Jeremy still in the 95% percentile of babies his age, his doctor declared Jeremy ready to try solid food "at any time."
As we learned with Harry, "solid" food really means mush; rice mush. But, it was pretty interesting for Jeremy. He seemed to open his mouth like he wanted it, but once it was there he didn't seem to quite know what to make of it.
