Yay!! Today Andrew has had his first little taste of banana, and he could not eat fast enough, much to my delight.
It all came about as we, 5 mothers with babies, after Babyrytmik (singing with babies) and a push-chair-maffia-walk headed back to our flat for a take away lunch and dessert. After feeding ourselves the little ones wanted their due, which for little M meant banana. Andrew was watching her with great interest, so I thought I'd just see what the reaction would be. I put some in his mouth and awaited the reaction. Quite tenatively he moved his tounge around to see what the heck it was, then cautiously swallowed and decided it didn't kill him.
A little more went in, and he repeated the procedure a little faster and with a bit more umpf. Yet a bit more and he decided this was yummy!! In the end we borrowed M's spoon and he was like a little baby bird who hadn't been fed in weeks. Mouth wide open and eagerly leaning forward to get the goodies faster, faster. He even grabbed hold of my arm to push the spoon towards him faster!
So so funny!!
In the end, he'd have less than a tea-spoon full, but it was only meant as a taster.
We shall repeat the procedure tomorrow eve when Liam is back from work.
In all, a very good day was had even if I'm still quite amazed at how tiring it can be to be at home all day!
