New foods for Christopher

So Christopher is about 7 1/2 months old. He can start on solids. Solids scare the "you know what" out of me. They can be a choking hazard if he isn't ready. So I started with puffs...

Puffs are pretty much little fruit flavored cereal bits that dissolve fairly easy. Junior LOVES them. The bonus of these is that he gets to practice his pincer grasp. Picking up small things with his fingers. He's getting very good at this. He isn't as good at it when it sticks to the inside of his palm and nothing will get it off. Kinda cute to watch him shaking his hand around trying to get it off.

So he's had puffs. I'm planning on trying him on peas and green beans cut up this week. Tonight, he had a few tiny pieces of pasta. He seemed to like them. Tiny, as in smaller than your pinky nail. I told David, it won't be long before he's just eating our dinner cut up on his tray.

He has also had Mum Mums. Pretty much a rice cracker, dissolves fairly easy. He LOVES these and had one in church today.

Junior is also teething pretty bad. I can see a little white line but it seems like he's been "within a few days" of them cutting for a week now. Can't wait...
