Slow Start

Do you remember this?

This was Jack's first attempt at food. It took him a good 2 weeks before he really got the hang of the whole eating/swallowing thing. Now look at him...

(I think Jack had a fight with the ravioli - looks like the ravioli won!)

Now, our other little cutie pie is hard at work learning too. We were told by the nannies at her orphanage that she was eating rice cereal. However, we quickly saw that she wanted nothing to do with any kind of spoon we put near her mouth. Hannah has gotten the hang of eating baby cereal puffs and NEVER turns them down. She will "sometimes" eat baby cheetos, graham crackers, and toast. By "sometimes" I mean this...

She will put the food in her mouth - chew it up - and then let it all come back out without swallowing.

I made more baby food and froze it all before we left but she doesn't want much to do with it at this point. In the last week we have had a little more progress with food on the spoon but have had to result to stage 1 baby foods - bananas, pears, etc. It sometimes takes an entire day to get down one container and that doesn't count what is on her bib or her face, BUT it is progress. I know it won't be long and she will probably be a pro.


  1. She is so cute! :) She'll get the eating thing down.... just keep experimenting with different textures, flavors, finger-foods vs. spoon foods, etc.... They all have their own pace to learn at and she'll be a pro soon and you'll wonder why you ever worried! :) How's it going being Mommy of 2 little ones? Figuring out how to go ANYWHERE yet? I'll confess, Isaac is 8 months old and I still haven't brought all 3 of them to a store alone.... Hopefully I never will!

  2. You are such an amazing mommy Megan! I love these new pics :) Hugs
