Love at first bite

Thomas and Max... different approaches to eating...

We fed the boys their first bites of solid food over the weekend. I use the word 'solid' loosely, since it was rice cereal mixed with breastmilk until it was practically the consistency of breastmilk.

I was woefully ill prepared for the whole thing - the only appropriate spoon I had was a little plastic measuring spoon, the only bibs were the camo bibs provided by our Vermont neighbors, and the batteries in the video camera were dead. You'll notice that the bowls aren't exactly the adorable sets that we received from Terri.

Bad Mommy.

Max was very mellow about the whole thing and took it all in stride, just slurping down whatever was tipped into his mouth, with minimal squishing out and leakage.

Thomas, on the other hand, was indignantly hungry and.. umm... complaining to start with. Then, once he realized that the stuff was FOOD he sucked it right down and pulled the spoon out of my hand.

All in all, it was pretty adorable. Wait til we start vegetables... I have a feeling that will make for good photos!

Oh now the fun begins!!! It won't be long before they decide there are much more fun things than rice cereal. Sweet potatoes. butternut squash, bananas, pears. Sam's favorite is a squished up avocado mixed with Gerber organic pears.

Your boys are so damn cute. I just love how they look like brothers but they definitely have their own individual looks... and personalities. You're going to have your hands full for the next 18 years. :)
