Baby's First...

...corn on the cob!

We had sweet corn the other night and gave Eliza a quarter of a cob to try.  At first she was all "WTH do you people expect me to do with this?" and threw it on the ground.  So daddy modeled how to eat it, and then she put it in her mouth and found that it was pretty much the coolest food she's ever experienced.  

NOMNOM.  Tasty AND fun to eat!


Daddy, have you HAD this stuff?

Hey, he likes it too!

So our adventures in BLW continue, and I must say we are having such a positive experience.  Eliza seems to be way ahead of her fellow 8-month-olds in eating (what she will eat, how much, her ability to swallow food), and more importantly, she has fun and so do we!

I've got to ask --- what was the, um, diaper situation like after she ate it?

Ella said...

Ha! Alyssa: it came out the exact same way it went in ;P

When you have some time will you tell me how you started the eating thing, and what you started with? PLEASE, or post more about it! Also, what is your schedule now a days ~ the twins just went to 2 naps a day, are not sitting up YET, and want only bottles, food just doesn't seem to fill them up! HELP! I love your posts, they are full of insite for me, as I am just 2 months behind you!
