A Day of Firsts

Today Shelby had her first taste of solid food - mashed banana in milk to be exact. And it was nothing more than a taste because for whatever reason it's the only thing she hasn't wanted to put in her mouth. Feet, fingers, paper, toys, shirts, spoons, napkins, wrappers etc. have all been subject to some oral exploration over the past few weeks. But not the actual food.... 

This evening, following dinner at beach with friends we dipped Shelby's feet in the ocean for the first time. she wasn't so crazy about the water either. The rushing water or its temperature may have lead to the dissatisfaction. But it's a first nonetheless. And we will be back.
