Juju's First Bites

We delay feeding our children solid food until they have good head support, can sit well, show an interest in eating, and are old enough that their GI systems are more developed (more able to digest solid food and less chance of developing allergies.) It's usually around the time that they get their first teeth. Juju has been interested in eating for awhile now and has been grabbing my fork when I am holding him. Of course, we waited until the whole family was home so that we could all see and take pictures and videos. Even though this is my fifth child, these little milestones don't get any less exciting!

Here he is taking his first bites of a mashed banana. You can hear his siblings in the background making a big fuss over him.

He thoroughly enjoyed his first solid food!

  1. I love it. All I could think of is how sweet/wonderful it is to have a large family. The kids were so happy for him.
