Peas: Louisa's First Food

Rock's first meal was a big deal. We planned for weeks to prep what he would eat for such a special occasion. He had rice cereal and he hated it.
Fast forward to this meal. Rock helped me make this menu with this recipe for dinner, which is COMPLETELY fabulous, but there was nothing special about this evening in particular.
Until, Fix decided to give Louisa some of his peas and she ate her first solid food! I know some parents start with solids at 4 months, but since our kids are so prone to allergies, we decided to wait until they were 6 months old. Louisa is 5 months old in these pictures.
And she loved the peas! She probably only ate about 4 peas total, but she had a lot of fun doing it!
Of course we'll be holding off on giving her a full solid meal until she's a 6-month old, but it's good to know that she's ready and able when that time comes.
