That's exactly what we did. Shortly after 4 months DD started rice cereal (4 months + 1 week), and we introduced veggies at 5 months, fruits at almost 6 months.

Every baby is different, some are ready for cereal around 4 months, some not til 6 months or after that. Watch for babies cues (mine tried grabbing my mom's sandwich shortly after 4 months )
By now (6 months + 1 1/2 weeks) she has tried rice cereal, oatmeal cereal, and "beginner" peas, carrots, green beans, squash, wax beans, sweet potatoes, apple sauce, bananas, pears and peaches, as well as gnawing on a Baby Mum rice rusk cookie, and stole a pickle (cut lengthwise) off my plate.
