Because he's almost six months, and because he still doesn't sleep through the night, and because he wants to nurse ALL THE TIME, we finally decided to introduce Oskar to his first solid food. Avocados. He did not love them. But he did fine moving them around in his mouth, lunging for and gumming the spoon, drooling green, and gag-urgitating. With about two mice-sized bites making it to his belly, I'd say this initial exploration into the world of solid foods was a resounding success.
At least he smiles a lot, anyway.
