After noticing, watching, reaching and grabbing, Shy has been showing interest in what we are eating! After much deliberation, it was unanimous that we LET THE GIRL EAT!!!! Her official first food, if we are not counting Play-Doh, was avocado. It has a nice creamy texture and is rich in healthy fats, antioxidants and Vitamin E! I assure you no harm was done to the child in the making of this blog!
Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it! Despite many of the photos, she did enjoy the avocado, likely more mushing it between her fingers than in her mouth. She has shown much more agreement with squash, sweet potato and carrots! I am seeing the smallest evidences of a little type-A in there. She thinks she must have the spoon herself. We have compromised on each of us having a spoon. Mine is the one with the food, simply to assure more food goes in than on! Next up, FRUITS!!!! I anticipate much more enjoyment!
