On this week’s episode of “The Rachel Show” we see Rachel trying solid food for the first time.

It was a dark and stormy night. Well, it was dark and it was night anyway. Technically it wasn’t stormy, but it was stormy the night before, and the week before, and the week before that and, well, you get the picture. Anyway, back to our story, Rachel was starting to show signs that she wanted a little more chow than the bottle alone could offer, so we got ready for delicious rice cereal.

Rachel: Ah, what a nice nap. Do you know what would be nice right now? A nice delicious bottle of formula.

Mommy (aka Noelle): Well good morning (actually evening) Rachel, are you hungry?

Rachel: What did I just finish saying? Why don’t you ever listen to me? Of course I’m hungry!

Mommy: Okay, okay. Well, I have a special treat for you this evening for dinner.

Rachel: Oh yeah? What is it?

Mommy: Rice cereal.

Rachel: Never heard of it.

Mommy: Well, you are going to love it, (aside) I hope.

the audience laughs

Mommy: Everything’s ready.

Rachel: Okay, let’s give this a try.

The video is six minutes and 15 seconds long. There is not much of a plot – think Napoleon Dynomite – but it’s still cute. The lighting is not very good (sorry – you know how these independent films can be) , but the acting is brilliant – the baby is especially believable!

I’ve heard rumors that solid food will make poopies more yucky (as if formula poopie isn’t yucky enough). Say it ain’t so!

You might have noticed the lack of a high chair. I don’t have one yet, so I just used her car seat. It worked okay. I have ordered a high chair, though, which I will hopefully have by next week. So stay tuned for next week’s episode of “The Rachel Show” where we will see our young heroine’s solid-food-eating skills improve, (we’ve already seen that she has plenty of bottle-eating skills – and by that I mean eating from a bottle, not actually eating a bottle!) and the addition of a cute little high chair.

  1. it takes awhile to get the whole solid food thing down. I always found that if I fed my kids half a bottle first, their tummies would be satisfied enough that they wouldn’t get so mad about the slowness of spoon fed food. She looks like she enjoyed herself, though, and you do a great job encouraging her! (kudos to the camera man–it is the least messy place to be–good thinking, Jeff!)
