At 7 1/2 months old JSL is anxious to dive into anything that he sees that is edible. Unfortunately for him, we have been slow introducing things to him. We wanted to make sure he got tastes of all things veggie before going on to fruits. Last night this changed. Finally it was time to enter into the land of fruits.
Here is JL feeding JSL his first bite of banana.
He was quite anxious to put it into his mouth and seemed to like it rather quickly. After chomping on it for a few seconds he wanted to get a better look at what it was that he put into his mouth.
Next came the touch test. Little did he know . . . this sucker was slippery!
He was successful and got the slick banana piece to his mouth.
Thanks to copious amounts of saliva (teething ya know) the banana quickly turned to mushy goo and was not suitable for JSL to hold anymore. He got quite upset when I took it away to mash up into some oatmeal. He kept "barking" at me to bring it back. He was happy once he saw that I had some very yummy cereal for him to gobble up.
He was a VERY happy camper. In fact he slept through the night again. Then this morning when I looked into his mouth I saw white at the tip of his gum. I did not feel it cut through yet, but man it is close. From the cranky nature of things tonight during a tub and getting dressed, my guess is they may be here Sunday morning.
