Yesterday Eli turned five months! I am stunned at how quickly time is passing.  He's learning so much and has reached a whole lot of milestones whether I was ready for it or not lol 

I was originally planning to feed Eli his first solids when he turned 6 months.  But this past weekend we took him to Ihop and he literally grabbed one of my pancakes lol. After that experience I decided to try cereal and he was definitely ready for it.  He loved it and gets so eager to eat he takes the spoon from me to lick it and bite it lol 

I'm thinking in a few weeks I'll start him off with a vegetable.  I was thinking about possibly making it myself, but to be realistic I don't think I will stick to it on a daily basis.  The cereal I'm currently feeding Eli is from "Happy Belly" and it's brown rice.  I've been reading a lot about Earth's Best baby food I think I will buy this kind and see how it goes.  

What did you ladies start with? Fruits or vegetables?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated!  

Also in honor of Veterans Day, Eli was dressed as a Marine today.  His daddy served in the Marines for 8 years (4 active, 4 inactive).  He and his veteran friends loved it! 

Hope everyone is doing well!
