Maggie's relationship with solid food is slowly becoming friendlier. She still spits out a fair percentage of her rations, but she is at least opening her mouth for bites now, and seems happy to be eating. The increase in solid food consumption has led to many of the side effects that I predicted and feared -- our entire lives are splattered with baby food, Max has begun asking me to feed him his meals again, too, so as to share the attention, and the other end of Maggie's digestive tract has begun producing poo in a wide variety of colors, textures, and degrees of disgustingness. However, there is one really marvelous side effect that sort of balances it all out -- she now sleeps for 10 or 11 hours straight at night! Yee haw.

*Bonus Question: If you look up Maggie's nose in this picture, you can see tiny particles of what she ate for dinner. Was it
a)green beans?
b)sweet potatoes?
The winner gets no prize, but does get to experience the warm glow of correctness, plus the warm glow that accompanies studying food particles stuck up a baby's nose. Enjoy!
