With great gusto and excitement we offered Ben rice cereal this week for the first time!! For the last week leading up to the big event we’ve given Ben a bowl, spoon and sippy cup to explore during our meal times and he really seemed to enjoy it. So on the big day we gave him his own bowl and spoon to “use” while we fed him. We really expected him to take one bite and refuse to take any additional spoonfuls, however, we were pleasantly surprised when he ate the ENTIRE BOWL of cereal! He seemed pretty excited about the whole experience as seen here! We had several moments of laughter while watching Ben’s eyes go crossed as he followed the spoon a-l-l-l-l-l-l-l-l the way into his mouth. He also had fun splashing in the puddles of cereal that managed to escape his mouth and land on the tray!
So with that same gusto and excitement the following day, I mixed up the cereal, put Ben in his Bumbo seat, attached the tray and was prepared to land the airplane in the hanger for the second time in a row. Wahoo! It turns out that Ben had other plans for his rice cereal that day and it did not involve entering his mouth whatsoever! You can click here for the clip. This picture sums up exactly what he thought of the rice cereal that day! (P.S. Six month update coming soon!)
