Lately Darion had been showing more and more interest in our food and trying to grab it when we are eating so my mother suggested that I try a little of the solids with him.

He seems to love it.. So far I've made sweet potatoes and peas (both puree) for him and he eats it up! I'm only giving him about an 1-1.5ounces before I give him some bottled breast milk but he gets so excited about the food. (I only give it to him once a day and let a few days pass before giving it to him again just to see how his body handles it)

Today was the third time that I fed him some solid food (peas) and he kept trying to take the spoon from me. So I gave him the spoon and he fed himself! Already. He does the same with the bottles. He doesn't want you to hold it for him. He wants to hold it.

Anyway I took a quick video of him doing it today(Its probably easier to RIGHT CLICK on the link and choose SAVE TARGET AS to download it first if you don't have a high speed connection):

L is also showing so much interest in our food and trying to grab it. He sits in his high chair at meals and I give him a spoon to play with. He takes the spoon to his mouth, correct side and everything, over and over.
We are skipping purees though so he wont be getting solids until after 6 months old.

Baby A was trying to eat all of my food so we let her try sweet potatoes this weekend. She did a great job eating and she loved them but they made her gassy. I think we are going to try Carrots this weekend.

Just remember that "Food before one is just for fun" Babies need to be fed breastmilk or formula BEFORE eating solids because their main source of nutrition still needs to be breastmilk or formula. Solids do not contain nearly the amount of fat/calories/nutrients that the others do.
