Now that Carter is 4 months old we are starting to give him cereal. I think our first attempt went a lot better then I anticipated. Even though the dogs were hoping for some floor droppings, Carter managed to keep most of the food in his mouth!
Moving from a nipple to a spoon must be like riding a bike for the first time or flying a space shuttle. There are a lot of new skills that need to be learned. Where do you put your tongue? What is this large flat thing in my mouth? He didn’t know what to do with the spoon or food, so he just sucked on the spoon. I guess messing with the spoon is better then flinging food across the room. I’m sure that day will come… here’s a video (http://www.youtube.com/v/N6uWPim6vzc).
