Arlo takes a bite... or two.... or more


Photobucket

He wasn't too excited about it at first... but by the end of the "meal" he had taken to it quite well.
The next night he tried some banana...
And 5 nights later, he loves it!
Still has some work to do on the swallowing, after a few bites he gets the hang of it.

Tonight as I fed him, he was getting very excited and his arms were waving everywhere (also because he was tired and in a mood), he whacked the spoon with his hand and the cereal got him right on the nose.

Wow, he transformed over night! He's always been a beauty but all of the sudden he's super light. And banana, I can't believe that... He's a big boy!

BTW, I have thought about you for the last two days since it's been beautiful... WE have to get pictures soon and I've been working or else I would have called spontaneously like you mentioned- in hopes of beating the rain! After we get back in town I will give you a jingle but I have a date and time in mind. Talk to you soon.

Oh he's so cute! What gorgeous blue eyes! I'm glad he likes his new style of eating! When Mylee saw the pictures of him with food on his face, she said, "Oh, baby messy. He needs a wipey!" =)

that looks thick for a baby's first feeding. Our dr. suggested starting with the yellow squash family (after rice cereal). I can tell this is because it aids in digestion. If he has problems, try that. We did pumpkin & yams...will try peas soon...and making your own is sooo easy and cheap!
How are those diapers now ;)
