Jack's first bite

Jack is almost 5 months old and is growing great.  He eats often during the day and sleeps well at night.
So, we decided to let him try some rice cereal last night.  I remember giving Evelyn rice cereal for the first time and she didn't like it at all.  She is nearly 3 and eating is a battle most days still.
So, I wasn't expecting Jack to take more than a bite.  This early it is just about teaching him to swallow.  The rice cereal is mixed very very thin with breast milk.
Well, he really liked it.  I only gave him a tablespoon and he ate it right up and was reaching for the bowl.  I hope this is a good sign that he will be a good eater.
I can't believe we are already to this stage.  It is like once they start eating, then they are drinking out of a sippy cup and then all of a sudden you look back and realize they are running and are a toddler.  Time just goes by way too fast.
