Mmmm, mushy banana! We waited until 6 months to introduce food to Milo, and then we started with that horrible baby rice cereal. He didn’t like it. When I tasted it I found out why. He never has liked new foods, so this time I thought we’d give Naomi a chance to try stuff earlier, perhaps before her palate becomes so picky. So far there’s been nothing that she outright rejected–avocado, banana, pancake, bagel, yogurt, tomato sauce. It’s funny to see the contemplative expression on her face, absorbed in the new taste experience. Milo is always interested to watch her diaper changing. “Done big poos?” he always inquires. Now he’ll get to see bits and pieces coming through–all the more exciting!
While Naomi’s learning new tastes, Milo’s honing his hand-eye coordination. This week he learned how to tie a knot, a basic life skill. Of course, he then proceeded to tie 10 of them in a row on his apron string. Next life skill? UNtying knots.
