Solid Foods

For the last week or so I have been unable to satisfy the growing appetite of Sam without magically sprouting another boob. He has been eating constantly, and my life has become limited because of his eating schedule.


So I figured it was time to try something a little more filling.


The first night, he was not really into the rice cereal. He made the most hilarious faces and then proceeded projectile spit the mess all over himself and Matty. His fit grew more and more intense the more we tried to feed him.
The second night he was willing to give it a try. He would dive for the spoon only to make his "bad taste grimace" the second the cereal touched his tongue.
He learned really quick that nothing could get in if he held his lips closed. I'm pretty sure we got some into his tummy although 99% of it seemed to be caked all over his face.Soon enough he had grown tired of me feeding him, and decided to take matters into his own hands. Literally. (ps-check out that hairloss. There doesnt seem to be any rhyme or reason to his bald spots.)
The next attempt Grandma Bailey took over and finally got him to enjoy the solids. He is not eating a ton, but I am hoping his desire for it grows more and more as he realizes that it fills his belly a lot better than I am able to.

His hair was the first thing I noticed!! I love it!! I also can't shake the image of you with a third boob.

Hope we get to see you on Saturday...I'm going to have a car load of disappointed kids if we don't.
