Starts with Squash, Ends with Mush

I finally made it to the store to pick up some jars of baby food for Carter on Saturday night in preparation for his desire to grow up too fast momentous taste of something other than the same ol' (breast)milk.

Here is the little man after his first bite of butternut squash on Sunday. He had me a little worried at first with this lovely face you see to the right.

Eventually, he was grabbing my hand and pulling the spoon to his mouth.

Once it had become apparent he was done with his dinner, I gave him a little dessert. Yes, it was a biter biscuit. Yes, the box recommends 10 months. AND...Yes, he's supposed to be sitting up before he gets to have them. But what else can a boy with teeth hold and eat all by himself?

He's so independent already! He did absolutely great!! What a mess he was when all was said and done. He had biscuit mush all over his head and hands. I was so proud of how well he was able to take down that treat all by himself.

    Too cute! We have had oatmeal, avocado, apples, sweet potatoes, bananas, and rice cereal. Jonathan takes the spoon from my hand as well. Our boys are soooo big..=0( The last pic is my favorite!

  2. He did a great job! The first time I gave my daughter people food, she spit it all out. Wasn't having it at all!

  3. I don't know what that 10 month thing is all about, but I just see it as several months of missed pleasure and several missed moments for mom if you do what the box says! What does a box know about us anyway? Ha ha.


I am so excited you're here. Please leave me comment love...It makes me smile. And you want me to smile, don't you?
