I’m totally turning into one of those moms who think her baby eating solid food is the cutest thing ever. And yes I’m going to share it with you, too. But trust me, it’s cute.
I was so sure Ethan was going to love solids because he was practically taking our forks from us at dinnertime before he started eating. But not so much. The faces he makes just kill me – I can imagine from looking at him what it must be like to taste some of these things for the first time. You’d think we were feeding him lemons or something.
He’s got his act down – take a bite, make a face, swallow very carefully, shudder. Makes me laugh every time.
Oh here, you need to see it in action:
Okay, so he didn’t swallow that one. (Yeah, I know. That’s gross. Hey, you’re the one reading a mom blog.)
But seriously. That’s banana. What baby doesn’t like banana?!
The only thing Connor didn’t like at first was carrot. He quite adamantly refused to eat any, but with everything else he was quite happy to gobble it up. Based on Ethan’s reaction to everything else I wasn’t very optimistic that carrot would be especially well-received, but it was actually the first thing we fed him that he loved. He liked carrots better than pear! Weird baby.
Since we started him on carrots he’s been much more enthusiastic about eating in general. See?
He sits there like a little baby bird with his mouth wide open, and if we don’t spoon it in there fast enough he complains.
Have I mentioned this kid cracks me up? Just wait until we try to get him to eat meat.
