Pardon me if I seem a bit dramatic, but I am just so overjoyed to report that little Miss Holland had her first meal of rice cereal this weekend, and she loved it! You may recall that one of the earliest signs (other than the eczema) of Wade’s allergies was his reluctance to eat solid food. Because of this I was a little nervous about how things would go when we offered food to Holland. I am thankful to God that she was so happy to gobble up that cereal! She even tried to grab the spoon out of my hand so she could stuff it in her mouth! I’m so excited to try more foods with her.
I really can’t stress enough how grateful I am for this. It truly feels like a redemptive part of our story as a family, and mine as a mother. After never having experienced the joy of seeing my first baby eat his first food (bless his little heart!), I felt such frustration and confusion over what could be wrong. This time I felt such happiness and gratitude when I watched my girl enjoy the food I gave her. I am thankful to Jesus for this very good gift.
