Yep.


My baby is now eating Cheerios.

Woo hoo! Now we have something in common. The talent for eating solid food, particularly breakfast cereals. I'm very proud of my accomplishments in this area, and hope that he is, too.

Lynda said...

hehehe. He doesn't look to sure about Cheerios. Calem didn't like them at first.

Looks like he is a happy guy! Now that he's tackled the cheerios - bring on the good stuff!

cruel shoes—I think he is very proud of himself.

lynda—Oh no, he LOVED them.

fantastagirl—Cheerios are the good stuff. That is my all time favorite cereal.

Yay! Welcome to my world! We were at the diner yesterday morning and Aidan threw his Cheerios at the waitress while she was taking our order. It was awesome.

Your son is so cute. I wish I could meet him in person!

Shades said...

I can't wait for the mother/son buttered cheerios moment!

Think Frustrated said...

Awesome. Now you get to pick up Cheerios that have been ground into the floor.

This is a big milestone, not because of the solid food, but because he can grasp such a small thing. There's a name for that developmental step, but it escapes me.

Kids also seem to like those new fruity Cheerios. Just a thought.

HEY YOU HAVE TO MAKE LIL G CHEERIO'S AND BUTTER LIKE HIS PAPA LIKES LOVE YA KID DAD

Jen said...

but he really wants
cap'n crunch

JQ said...

Papa- What? I can't hear you!

Vegas Princess said...

Regular or Honey Nut? Because that certainly makes all the difference! :)

naynay—That's hilarious about Aiden. I can just picture it. Gideon would charm your socks off if you ever met him. He's a total flirt.

shades—That's what started it. I was eating buttered cheerios and JQ gave Gideon one of the unbuttered ones along the edge of the bowl. When he can actually eat them buttered...what a proud Momma I'll be. ;)

tf—I believe it's the pincer grasp. I can see the kids digging the fruity o's but we are an original Cheerio family. No Honey Nut or Fruties for us.

dad—You know we will absolutely share the finer points of buttered cheerios with him.

jen—Do you find it odd that so many people complain that it cuts the roof of their mouth?

jq—Nice hat

vp—Regular all the way.

He's a cute kid. Did he love rice cereal?

egan—He has liked all the baby cereals we tried: Rice, Barley, & Oatmeal. He is eating the Rice w/ Mixed Fruit right now (which is a bit chunkier than the others).

Think Frustrated said...

Don't limit your son's palate based on your own likes and dislikes.

Ok, so I'm a hypocrite because I won't give my daughter crunchy peanut butter because I'm a smooth kind of guy.

tf—We are really versatile eaters and I would in no way limit his food choices. Right now, since we are only giving him a handful or two max a day, I'm going to hold off on buying boxes of the others. That and the fact that he is too young for honey and I don't believe he needs the extra sugars that are probably in the Fruity ones.

RR said...

OK, look. This growing nonsense has to stop! He wasn't even crawling, like yesterday. I've read that you can stunt his development by locking him in a Skinner box or something. He'll be like your little Bonsai son. How cute would that be?

egan said...

We're not feeding our kid meat, is that limiting her options?
