And on Thursday for once in a very long while at that! :0)

While we were in Colorado, Seven’s interest in food hit an all-time high.  He was reaching for absolutely everything and since he was turning 6 months old the week we got home, we took the hint that he’s ready for real food.  We got the camera and video camera ready, put the high chair in nice light (because you know, what kind of photographer parents would we be if we didn’t stage our baby’s first moments in nice light?), and readied the rice cereal.  Seven was so excited for real food that he could eat his chair.

Bib on, spoonful of rice mush up, and he could NOT wait!

Then the rice cereal hit the lips and…


See that face?  That is how a baby says “Seriously, most anti-climactical moment of my life ya’ll. If this is real food, I’ll stay a boob-man forever thank you.”

Well, I can’t say I blame him.  I don’t really like the idea of rice mush either.  Maybe tomorrow we’ll try green peas and hey, if nothing else works, there’s always the 1-year prize of a great big cake all to his little baby self!  Now that’s what Mommy calls real food. :0)

Thanks for visiting!  Have a wonderful day!

    I don’t blame him either…poor kid. Give the boy some real solid food. He’s old enough for Taco Mamacita already, right? ;)

    Too cute! Maddy hated rice ceral until we started adding bananas(baby food kind) then she couldn’t get enough!

    My cousin was just visiting with her 7 month old baby and she initially had issues with rice cereal too. She found making it much thicker helped her to eat it better and she mixes in some baby food as well. I used to do that when I nannied too and the baby ate it like a champ. Good luck! :)

    I agree, my daughter hated it unless we mixed it with something else even vegetables. I usually just poured a little into the baby food jar with whatever I was feeding her. It kept her filled up longer! His face is priceless though!!!

    He’s so adorable! If he’s got green beans in his future he better realize how lucky he is. That has got to be the worst baby food ever! :)
