A miracle we all take for granted

I tried to think of some grand way to preface this post that would do justice to how I'm feeling but I'm drawing a blank. Instead, I will just show you a picture of the everyday, ordinary, but still extraordinary miracle that happened at our house this week.
First solid food, 8-22-14

This was how my last 2 babies felt about eating solid food:


And Raya:

Piper is completely and totally the opposite. She could not WAIT for me to put that spoon in her mouth! It was a momentous occasion for both of us. I waited until the kids were all at school so that it was nice and quiet with no distractions. One reason for that was that I wanted it to go well and start off on the right foot, and I knew having the other kids around would make it harder. The other reason was that I really wanted to have the experience of feeding her her first solid food to myself. I admit, that was a little selfish of me, but having been robbed of the joy that I now realize can be found in having a baby willingly and successfully eat baby food, I needed that. I also didn't want anybody else to see me cry over my baby eating food. :)

As is the case on most occasions, I took a lot of pictures. It might just be because it has been SO many years since I have fed a baby that didn't have any problems with eating, but I thought Piper did amazingly well. I expected it to be much more messy. I also realized that we own a grand total of 2 bibs. Either that or I have managed to misplace all of our bibs, which is also quite possible since it's been so long since we've needed them. Anyway, here are a few of the pictures I took:
