Rice Cereal or not...that is the question!

Well, I'm sure you read in my last post that we were going to hold off on rice cereal b/c of the whole mess factor, etc. I've been pondering whether to give it to the kids or not b/c they are taking in so much milk that Todd thought they were ready for a try. So...yesterday we introduced rice cereal to the trio. We did it w/ a spoon & boy, did we have a great time! Gabi & Ian were right on board & ready to go while Sofi had other thoughts about it. She continued w/ the same attitude today, not really interested what so ever. Ian was opening his mouth & then bringing his fist to his mouth in his attempt to imitate what we do when we eat by bringing the utensil to our mouths. It is the CUTEST THING EVER! I know this is going to get old soon enough but for now, we are enjoying watching our babies growing before our eyes.

Gabi was the 1st to try & all smiles!

Gabi after.

Ian was also all smiles & ready to go!

Ian after his bite.

Sofi right before, not quite the smiles that her brother & sister had.

Sofi during, still not liking the idea much.

Sofi saying, "EWWWWWE!!! I'm not sure I like this."

So far, so good. It is another step in the direction of growing up. I still can't believe they are 4 months old. Where did the time go?

How cute. We started at 4 months too. I've got to ask, what are the babies sitting in? I've never seen anything like that and it looks really cool.

The faces they make only get better and better as you start to introduce all the new baby foods! It makes for great pics and big messes! The babies are getting so big already - they are very cute! I too am curious what they are sitting in? It looks like something with PVC pipe? Anyway, I read your blog often but don't usually post comments- my trio is 9 months and it gets busier every day, but I enjoy reading about your family.

I also have triplets and would like to know what they are sitting in. It looks great! Please let me know! :)

The babies are so big! They look great! I need to call you- we have one baby home and are almost through with the NICU. It has been relatively easy ( we are so lucky compared to come parents we have met), but the last 2 are probably coming home on monitors. :-( What are your babies sitting in?? I want one!

Hi everyone! The seat they are sitting in was a hand me down from another triplet mommy. It was made by someone that gave it to her. It is FANTASTIC! The only thing I would change is the straps otherwise it is perfect for feeding at this point. I'll see if I can take a better picture w/o the kids in it. SHOOT, I may need to consider making them!

They are all getting so big Astrid! I can't believe they're 4mo already! Must have been about a year ago you were finding out you were having triplets?? I absolutely love that first photo of Gabi!!!

So so cute! Isn't it crazy how fast the time goes? I remember what a huge change it was to introduce cereal and solids to my trio. I still think that was one of the hardest adjustments for ME in their 18 months! It just changed my whole routine just when I was actually getting into a good routine!

What is that fabulous chair they are sitting in? What a great idea! Did you make that yourself?

Adorable kids, Astrid. I've been following your blog since I found out I was pregnant with triplets. I'd love to see a pic without the babies in the seat! It looks like something maybe my uncle could make for me! I would love to have something like this! Thank you!

I will take a picture tonight of the chair & post it for you all. It is great!

That seat is awesome. Someone should make them to order from double up. I would have loved one with twins, never mind triplets or quads. You could get rich, lol. Your babies are beautiful, by the way :)
