Yum yum, give me some!

So Eggy got her first taste of solids this week. We started with rice cereal. She seemed to really be into it the first day but not so much the next day. Maybe she wasn't as hungry or maybe the novelty wore off. Or maybe she just wasn't into the taste. Rice cereal doesn't look all that appetizing. We'll see how she does with the other stuff. What's next? Avocado? Sweet potato? Banana? I heard banana poop is not good so maybe I'll wait on that one.
Anyway, I'm a little sad about starting Eggy on food now. I was hoping to make it to 6 months on breast milk alone but I thought she might be needing a little something extra because she's been waking up so frequently at night. At first, I kinda felt like I failed her but Eggy appah reminded me how chubby she's gotten. Have you seen my girl's thighs?! She's even got a little pot belly now.
It makes me proud. Like, I did that, my milk. I was at the mall the other day with my mom and Eggy. These two Korean ajummas were walking by and they were like, "ah yeppuh da (how cute)." When they asked me how old she was, I told them 5 1/2 months. And they said, "Wow, she's so big for not even 6 months! Are you breastfeeding? Wow, you must get a lot of milk! Do you get a lot of milk?" So I guess I done good for her, right?
And I'm hoping to make most of her food myself instead of buying the jarred stuff. I'm sure it's totally unnecessary but I want to get one of these bad boys.
It just seems like making her food would be so much more fun with it. I am such a sucker for these baby products. Now I just have to talk Eggy appah into it. ;) "But we could feed her all organic foods! Do you want her to grow jji-jji's when she's 7?!?"
