Weaning

If at first you don’t succeed…

Today he ate. He’ll be 7 months old in under a week, and has thus far shown very little interest in food until today. It seems that apple and mango puree is the way to go! Good old Heinz.

He was even happy enough to drink from his cute little sippy cup that his Nanny got him from Ikea while he was still a little bean in my tummy.

Apparently on Easter Sunday he ate a bit of grape (cut up properly of course) and a few limbs off a cheese and onion Pom Bear, but I wasn’t around to witness it so it totally doesn’t count right?

I have spent the whole day waiting for the inevitable explosion of orange vomit, but 7 hours on and it has yet to rear its ugly head…
