Six Round Our Table

It began as a bite here, a lick there. A nibble of Daddy's banana...then no more for a week. A suck of juicy peach...then a return to Mama's milk. Testing. Trying. Experiencing.
Then food began to taste good. Really good. Mama could no longer follow the "introduce new food every three days" rule as you were tempted by new taste treats at most every meal.
Nothing pureed for you, no sir! You inhaled chunks of broccoli, carrots, squash, onions, and roasted peppers. You devoured plums, blueberries, papayas, melons, and strawberries. You sampled shreds of chicken and beef, peas, cheese, yogurt, rice, pasta. Glorious flavor!
And while Mama still enjoys the snuggling and sharing at day-time meals, Daddy suggested you move to a chair and have your own plate for our nightly family dinnertime.
Welcome to our table, Benjamin.


  1. He's adorable - glad enjoys solid food!

  2. Wow! How could he be so big already?

  3. Oh what a cutie! Anikah also enjoyed this post very much:)she loved the pic of her friend.

  4. What a sweet little face! (And so nice that this little face is so accepting of healthy taste treats. :-)

  5. This reminds me of when my kids started to eat "real food"...such a fun time. Messy meals, but fun for them! lol

  6. Ah... I am going through this as well. But thankfully Audrey has not weened yet... or I think I would be crying everyday all day long. :)

    Love the picture!!


  7. Benjamin has not weaned yet either. Far from it. He still nurses about every 2 hours! But he loves his food now, too.

  8. Funny how we plan things out for our children then they go and decide to change courses on us, isn't it? He's too cute. Glad he's a good eater for you :-)

  9. Kylie is the same way. She LOVES food but still loves to nurse. Making this mama very happy! She still nurses around 7-8 times a day and can eat 3 meals!
