Last night Xander tried his first carrots. I was really nervous about giving him more new foods since when I tried giving him cereal, he not only hated it but he didn't sleep well all 4 days we tried the cereal. I was afraid the cereal was the reason. After a few days I realized it was probably more of an effect from my birth control shot. Since I'm nursing and I had gotten a new shot the day we tried cereal for the first time, I think the big blast of hormones might have been the culprit. I'm not sure about this but I think its definitely possible.
So, we tried the carrots. He was actually opening his mouth well and actually ate some and was happy and smiley for a lot of it. He didn't eat tons but he did really well for his first time. Here are some pictures:
