Good head control.
Mouths hands and toys independently.
Able to sit in an upright position with support either on the lap or in a suitable high chair.

Opens mouth when food is offered.
Enjoys watching others eat.

My boy is 5 months next week and I have been giving him bits and pieces from my plate, pumpkin and potato and little bit of rice, before I can put it on his table he grabs my hand to go straight to the mouth.
I've also been letting him play with an empty sippy cup so he gets used to shoving that in his mouth.
I'm actually really looking forward to properly starting solids, watching him discovering food is going to be great. Messy but fun.
