Our babies turned 6 months old on the 14th and so, after seemed like a really long wait, I finally gave them their first solid food which is rice cereal.

This is Mikelle trying her first rice cereal.

And here is Rianne.

After rice cereal, I tried some mashed banana and Rianne immediately liked it but not Mikelle. Mikelle refused to open her mouth for the second spoon. I tried giving some mum mum rice rusk (banana flavor) to Mikelle and she loved it. She seemed to prefer feeding herself than be fed. Lately, Mikelle refuses to open her mouth every time I give her a spoon of food but immediately reaches for a rice rusk and eats. Rianne loves cereal on a spoon and rice rusk the same. I look forward on introducing more variety of food and flavor.

Here is a video of Mikelle eating rice rusk (it is not choking hazard since it dissolves easily in the mouth).

And for some 6 month old pictures:

Congrats on this milestone! I was SO EXCITED to introduce solids, then I realized it was a lot more work....Paul LOVED pumpkin. Big huge smiles the first time he tried it.

beautiful girls.

Paul liked seeing the girls eat their food. He thought it was funny when they spit it out.
