Baby's First "Real" Food

Last Thursday the 3rd of Sept. we fed Baby Al some homemade rice cereal. He is now 4 months and we decided to slowly try a few foods. So I found how to make rice cereal from a few websites (I never trust just one site for almost anything) and we got him all situated for his first food. We were so unprepared. We did have a baby bowel. Not that that was one of my concerns. But we didn't have a baby spoon and I had to give up on that idea.
As always baby's reactions are so cute, he did take it very well.
