This is totally irrelevant, but I have to share because I think the picture is too funny. My friend Jessie joined Isaac and me for lunch today. Isaac hung out in his high chair while I cooked and talked on the phone with Mom (Isaac’s Nana). Here’s how Isaac entertained himself:
“Look, Mom, no hands!”
The grand adventure that is eating is beginning for Isaac. We bought his first foods at Whole Foods yesterday. Today, I made him some very liquefied rice cereal. He made less of a mess than I anticipated, but fear not, he still had plenty of food on his chin and his bib.
He really wanted to chew on the spoon and didn’t understand why I kept taking it out of his mouth.
I can’t imagine that he actually swallowed more than 1/4 teaspoon of the food that did make it into his mouth, but at least we made a good first effort.
I think he’s going to get this all figured out pretty soon. He likes to help Mom get the spoon in his mouth, even though his aim is less than perfect. I am glad he was so interested in helping me. Here’s a little action from earlier today. He is always quite the ham for the camera. Feel free to mute this if you’d rather not listen to my voice…
