Food, glorious food!


Aizay's getting his first tastes of solid food this week. We started with bananas, which he seems to like...although at first he acted like he didn't quite know what to do with it once it was actually in his mouth. Sometimes he gags, but he always comes back for more.

I must say that my feeding technique, which involves first persuading him to grab something other than the spoon, then feeding him the bananas while diligently scraping the excess away, results in less mess than Christine's. Her technique seems to involve spreading the food to an even depth of an eighth of an inch all over his face.Posted by Hello

Good to hear the little guy is starting solid food!

Ben has been eating Squtternut Bosh and Banannas. He seems to enjoy the squash, and hasn't really been into the Bananas.

Oh yeah, watch out... Number 2 is going to put that umbilical cord to shame in the 'odor' department now :)

Unless you have a pretty and delicate hand, Davey, this pic looks like Christine is doing a very neat job feeding the baby. I don't see a messy face at all!

Yeah, it doesn't qualify as proof. It's just the first spoonful. I didn't take a pic at the end of the meal, so you'll have to take my (unassailable) word for it :)

Hmm...I may have been humbled, here. Tonight Aizay seems to have figured out how the grab the spoon and shove it into his face. My nice, neat, clean baby has devolved into a savage.

So, now you can't blame a messy face on your wife! The baby takes over! :-)
