Macy started solid foods at 6 months old. We started with rice cereal and waited the 5 days (to ensure no allergic reaction) and then gave her sweet potatoe followed by avocado. She loves both the sweet potatoe and avocado but seems to enjoy the avocado more. Since then she's had pears, peas (not her favorite), mango, apples, and the latest as of this morning: peaches.
She is getting pretty close to crawling. Right now she is able to get on her hands and knees and rock back and forth. Looks like Daddy will be spending his next day off baby-proofing the kitchen & bathroom cabinets!
