Food update

Will has been doing a great with his solids.  He is now eating:  yellow squash, zucchini, butternut and acorn squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, green beans, broccoli, asparagus, avocado, ground beef, turkey, chicken, apples, banana, tofu, pears, and mango.  He pretty much slurps down everything I give him.  Even if he makes a face as if to say he’s not too sure, he’ll still eat it.  The one food that he still seems to be unsure of is avocado.  He seems to like it one day and hate it the next.  I’ll keep giving it to him until he decides he likes it everyday.  It is funny to watch him though.  He opens his mouth really wide and doesn’t want to close it and swallow.  I practically have to scrape it on the roof of his mouth.  I have found that if I put half banana and half avocado on a spoon, he’ll eat it with no problem.  Uncle Bill and Evie sent him some toys that stick to his high chair tray, and Will loves them.  He was getting impatient waiting for me to get his lunch ready, but now he plays with his toys while he waits.  He even likes to play with them while I feed him.  Thanks Uncle Bill and Evie!!  We’ve tried giving him finger foods, and he plays with it, but hasn’t figured out how to get it in his mouth yet.  I find that interesting because he puts EVERYTHING else in his mouth but food!  🙂  Little stinker!!  I did break down and give him puffs as well.  For those of you that don’t know what puffs are, they are similar to Cheerios but vegetable and fruit flavored, and they disolve in your mouth, so you don’t have to worry about choking before babies are proficient at chewing.  By the second night of getting them, he has it down pat.  They work well because they stick to his hands so he is able to get them into his mouth before they fall out. 

Not so sure about the avocado.

If you look carefully, you can see the puff that he just put in his mouth.
