More solids...and we're learning

As I've stated before, we make little steps towards this big thing called THE SOLIDS.
We've played with bananas, boiled carrots and broccoli and in the last couples of days we've tried a little bit of rice cereals.
I've mixed in a small bowl one table spoon of rice cereal with 4 table spoons of formula, put the bowl on his tray and I've waited to see what would happen. Of course, his fingers were all over the bawl and while I let him play, I got a soft spoon and tried to feed him some of that stuff.
He opened his mouth with no hesitation, being intrigued by the object that got into his mouth as well as by its content but without spilling it out; no, no, he just swallowed everything even if there was still a grimace on his face. :))He had around 2-3 little spoons of that mixture.
I don't even know what to make out of it. He is not yet 5 months, he will only be 5 months in one week from now, so accordingly to almost all the books I've read, I should still wait a good full month. Is he ready for the solids?
- he sits all by himself in the highchair
- he is very interested in what we're eating, he's watching us with big interest;
- if he's on our lap, he reaches for the plate in front of us and even grabs the food we try to put in our mouths; rational as I've been so far, no paranoia whatsoever, I think I will just go with what my gut is telling me...I will just fallow my instincts; that is what I did so far and it seemed to have worked. My books will be my inner, motherly instincts will be my final decisions.
I will keep you posted.
