Eat It

I am a very bad mommy. lol!

This morning I had Port in my lap while I was eating my breakfast and as usual, he was closely watching the spoon go from my bowl to my mouth and back again. The boy is really interested in food, and most of the time watches us intensely or chews on his hands while we eat. I am having the hardest time holding off trying him on regular food. I can't wait to start making baby food again.

Anyway, I was eating oatmeal (baked apple flavor - not that you care) and he was watching every bite. So for fun, I scooped up a little bit of the thick, lumpy oatmeal on the end of my spoon and held it up to his mouth.

He opened his mouth and took it!

He is only 3 months old! Not only did he take it, he ate it! No gagging, no spitting, nothing. And the smile on his face was infectious! He started laughing and smiling and getting all excited as if I had just given him the most wonderful thing in the world.

I know, I am horrible.

But it was so fun!
Until,
D :)

Horrible??? Was there something wrong with that? What? My son's aunt started feeding her baby whatever she wanted as soon as she wanted (which did turn out to be a tad sooner that most doctors might "recommend") and has NEVER fed her traditional baby food and she is the happiest, healthiest, most relaxed baby who will probably never be picky or weird about food. BRAVO!!! I say, don't feel bad or horrible. Go with the flow! If he wants baked apple oatmeal... give it to him.

Miss O has been grabbing at my food for months - however, she's far more interested in schmearing it all over her face than she is in eating any of it :)
