OT: Solids--Not Interested

Well, I have a semi dilemma. I'm not too sure if I should be concerned or not. My 7 1/2 month old son went to the ped for his 6 month check-up. We didn't see our regular ped because she is out on maternity leave.
When he was weighed, he had not gained that much since his 4 month appointment (a little over a pound) and the ped was VERY concerned. She asked what he was eating and I told her only breastmilk. She said I needed to go straight to the market from the appointment and start him on baby food. I was also asked to make another appointment for a weight-check.
Needless to say, I didn't him on solids until he was 7 months old. I read about trying to mash up bananas and having them feed themselves (which is what my daughter did), but he wasn't having any of it. I tried stage 2 food, he looked disgusted and gagged. I tried stage 1 food...he still looked disgusted and gagged! I have been trying a little bit every day, but he could not be more uninterested.
Is this normal? My daughter had similar habits to him (3-4 minute nursing sessions, little naps, a lot of night waking) but she liked food. Should I be concerned?
