Baby's First Oatmeal

Not long ago I wrote here about Braden's impending food adventures. So far he has tried a lot of foods. He loves yogurt, bananas, green beans, and mashed potatoes. He eats oatmeal, carrots, and a little spaghetti. Last week he even had some chicken and rice that Arica made for the whole family. He had his own specially prepared serving with no salt or pepper and chicken that was processed into a fine dust. Braden loved that too. In fact the only thing that he has trouble with when it comes to eating is sitting still.

Braden's two favorite things seem to be eating and running wild. I guess this will serve him well later in life. He can eat whatever he wants because he will just work it off with his endless movement and exercise.

While I was away Arica and my Dad videoed the first attempt at feeding Braden oatmeal. He makes some really funny faces during the shoot. I thought I would share the experience with my adoring fans. Be sure to stick around until you see the Braden shake. He does this quite often when he first tries a new food. It cracks me up.

Here is Braden and his first oatmeal.

I'd give anything if my kid would eat chicken. For some reason he isn't interested in most meats, unless it is a this german meatball thing I make from time to time.

It looked like Braden was eating because he was hungry, not because he was enjoying the oatmeal all that much. Love the faces!
Your adoring fans or Braden's? LOL

Your boy and my son must be weaning around the same time. Noah loves his baby rice but brocolli and avocado are a big no no!

Just wait until he wants to eat and run wild at the same time. You'll need the five-point harness to keep him in the highchair. :)

(p.s. I love the video)
