fruity solids

So we've started L on solid foods. Not so solid, though: rice cereal, oatmeal, sweet potato mush, etc. And we do this at the same time we're eating a meal so that we're all eating together. But we only do it at home. So yesterday we're at a restaurant (Chinese buffet) and just as J and I get our plates of food L starts whining. We figured out that she was basically saying, "Hey, where's my food?" So I went back to the buffet to see if there was anything I could give her and found her a piece of cantaloupe. She totally dug it. She was munching and sucking away at it until it crumbled into smaller bits all in her lap and the floor. So I got her a few more. It was totally cool. We had read that babies let you know when they are ready for solids and it turned out to be totally true.
