Alathea: "Abi, open mouth!"
Abi's thinking "Gross!"
"This food looks much better than it tastes!"
Alathea: "Abi, open mouth again!"
Abi: "Mommy, please no more! I'll never look at food lustfully again!"
Abigail is happy girl again! She can handle the green beans as long as they are outside her mouth, not inside!
As you can see we gave Abigail her 1st taste of "real" food. I am no advicate of starting baby food early. I honestly would rather just skip baby food all together. I planned on waiting until Abi was at least 6 months old (she's only 4 months now). But, if you have ever seen this girl around food! She practically dives at it with her mouth wide open! She'll smack her lips, drool and reach for our food. So I thought maybe I was being selfish not seeing if she wanted it sooner.
It was fun watching her faces! She did NOT like those green beans! Alathea was so funny feeding her. I have a hilarious video clip...I wish I knew how to put it on this blog. Alathea actually did a great job. She has lots of practice after feeding Kat-Kat baby food last year (yes, it really looks like a baby feeding a baby!!).
So, for now, we're keeping the baby food in the pantry. It was a fun 20 minutes. But we won't try again for another two months. Hopefully Abigail will behave herself around big people food until the time comes to try again.
