Re: First veggie/fruit
After rice cereal, I started both my boys with peas. DS2 just tried them for the first time last night--so cute. DS1 is 6 and eats just about every veggie (except avocado, though he loved it as a baby). I think continuing variety in foods you offer and limiting empty calories is key as they get older. I don't buy suggestions that if you start with a sweet, they'll forever reject savory baby foods. I just wouldn't only offer sweet foods.
