Bobby Eating!

So, we've been struggling with getting Bobby to eat solid food, but today he actually ate bananas by choice! We were pretty much at wit's end, and so we decided that if he was resisting that much, then he probably wasn't ready.

So we gave him a couple weeks and tried again today. He didn't go for the cereal, and I thought this try was going to be horrible and frustrating all over again. But then I broke out the bananas and this was the messy, but oh so wonderful, result.

So, while it may seem very strange for any child of Bob's and mine to be a picky eater, he is. I suppose he'll take after his parents and order things custom made off of menus, want his sandwiches cut just a certain way, and get upset of the cheese is on the bottom of the burger instead of the top. I bet we'll even have to stock both crunchy and creamy peanut butter.

Oh wait, we already do.

I love how he looks at daddy every time to see if he's gonna clap for him. And then smiles super big like yessssssss. You know he totally thinks he's in control like, "look at these fools get all excited when I do something so dumb!" HAHAHA! He is too cute for words.

That was awesome! He has great coordination! Nice work you guys!

Yeah, he totally adores his daddy and loves clapping. Wish we had figured that out earlier...

And, since he's pretty much a genius he probably didn't want to eat until he had the ability to grab the spoon and put it in his mouth himself...

You should probably get Bobby his own spoon...then you won't have to fight him for it! :) And bananas are delicious. You should probably sing the song for him. He's bananas b-a-n-a-n-a-s

Ha! Yeah, we're going to have to have to get his vision checked relatively early I'm thinking... ...

And, he's much better now about not grabbing the spoon. Maybe he realized he gets more food in his mouth if I feed him.
