When Isaiah turned six months both he and I were excited to begin solid foods. He had been trying to grab food out of our hands for a few weeks. In fact, just before he was six months his cousin Annika was handing out cupcakes for her birthday and he tried his hardest to get a hold of Daddy’s cupcake. Sorry buddy… it’s going to be a few
months years before you get cupcakes. Not long after this Isaiah got his first food. It was a piece of cucumber. He loved it! Since then he continues to love almost anything we give him. He’s eaten a lot of cucumber sticks but his diet quickly expanded to include tomatoes, asparagus, broccoli, peppers, sweet potato, carrots, pears, apples, banana, oatmeal, avocado… I’m sure there are more that I’m missing!
It’s been so fun to watch him learn the fine motor control of picking up food and bringing it to his mouth. This was in the first few days. He realized that two hands would help him hold it in and get a bit more enjoyment.
Pear is a definite favourite!
