Eating, why is it such a chore?

Our sweet boy -- finding something, aside from breast-milk, that he likes to eat is a real test! So far we've tried rice cereal, multi-grain cereal, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, peas, bananas, plums and carrots. In the past MONTH.

He at a little bit of bananas a couple nights ago, so I started off last night's dinner with bananas. He, however, wanted nothing to do with it. He immediately clamped his lips shut and turned away. So I opened up a jar of carrots to see what he'd think of that. At first it seemed like he was okay with it.

Then, after a couple smmmmallll bites he decided, suddenly, that he didn't like carrots.

And then he wasn't sure. sigh Regardless, he ate maybe 1/4 of the jar of carrots for dinner last night.

Then I let him gum on a baby carrot for a while this afternoon, which he seemed to like. So this evening I had carrots and bananas at the ready (open from last night). We started with the carrots and he liked them. He actually finished the jar! And, as if that wasn't enough, he ate about 1/3 the container of bananas. Yes, little boy! And then washed all that down with some breast milk before sitting down to the table with Dad,Linda, Gregg and I while we grown-ups ate a delicious dinner of pasta that Dad had cooked.

Yay Davey -- I'm so proud of you!
