Kate has taken to solids like it's no big deal. She gets excited when I put her in her high chair and let's us know when we are taking too long between bites. She also likes to help me feed her.
With every bite, she grabs my hand to pull it to her mouth. Then she sticks her hand in her mouth after the spoon is gone. Apparently this helps her eat the food somehow. It also means that my hand is covered with baby food by the time I am finished feeding her.
Truth be told, I think she just wants to do it herself. Mommy is not ready for that yet.
