No more need to wonder when to try solid food for the firs time with JSL.
At dinner tonight JSL was not happy. Usually he will sit in his highchair and play with toys and be happy. Sure he will watch and talk with us, but no fussing unless he wants to be held. This was not what happened tonight. JSL was antsy and kept making fish faces at us.
I went and got a bowl of water and one of the baby spoons. I spoon fed him some water (he’s only had water two other times – so that was also new). He really loved it and wanted more. I looked at JL and asked if I should break open the rice cereal. He said sure give it a shot since he was making even more sucking noises and fish face.
Here’s his first reaction:
More slop goes in:
Which means that some must come back out:
Note he’s grabbing my hand to try to stop me:
And now here’s a video taken soon after:
As you can see, JSL was not too thrilled with eating food. Personally I think he was upset he didn’t have what we were eating. That slop didn’t look good, but it’s the thing to start with. We will try it again tomorrow and go from there. Who knows we just may not be ready. Thanks to everyone for the input after my last blog entry about making this decision.
Before all of this fun and excitement (while I was preparing the rice cereal) NHL was having fun entertaining JSL. Here is JSL laughing at crazy NHL:
Here’s another video of JSL in hysterics thanks to his funny big brother:
