Shortly after this photo, Robert ate all of his store-bought carrot baby food. He really likes peas and carrots now!

Eating Peas — Baby Food Version

From Brian: In an attempt to determine if he dislikes the taste of peas or if he disliked the texture of homemade mushed peas a couple of nights ago, Beanie’s Mommy had the idea to try to feed him store-bought peas baby food last night. Did he eat it?
Here comes the choo-choo!, February 22, 2009, 6:39 p.m.

The short answer is yes, he ate it! Therefore, it might be that he just didn’t enjoy the texture of homemade versus the smoothness of the store-bought. Or maybe he’s finally getting accustomed to vegetables.
Yup, he'll eat at least a few bites, February 22, 2009, 6:36 p.m.

The long answer is that he’ll eat some, but eventually gets disenchanted with the concept. He likes to grab our spoon or otherwise interfere with our feeding him. Below is a photo of him holding a plastic spoon–an ingenious “decoy” that Mommy used to occupy one of his hands to give her a cleaner, er, more accurate shot at approaching his mouth with the food.

Eventually, he has a bit too much fun with the decoy. He waves it about, often dropping it and leaving us without a decoy unless we pick it up for him (and potentially cleaning it in case his puts it in his mouth). He can block us, dueling spoon-to-spoon. He can bang the decoy around, possibly knocking over his bowl of food! Thus, we might detain one of his arms in order to feed him.

All in all, it was somewhat successful. Eventually, he clamped his mouth and tried to dodge the food, but not before we fed him most of his dinner.

All These Toys, but He Really Wants Love

From Brian: He woke at 6 a.m. this morning–not so bad because he occasionally wakes earlier. I took care of him while Mommy slept in.

I was sleepy throughout the morning, but he wasn’t! I tried to place him on his activity/playmat surrounded by lots of toys while I tried to work. The photo above and the video below shows that he wasn’t amused!

However, as the photo below shows, he was happy when I didn’t work and played with him.

Carrots AND Peas for Dinner

From Brian: After last week’s attempt to feed him carrots and our recent attempt to feed him peas, we went double-or-nothing tonight to try to feed him carrots and peas. How did it go?

There were moments of happiness! See below:

Below are moments of contention between the Beanie and the Mommy:

He may look like he's laughing, but he's trying to cough the food out! February 19, 2009, 7:15 p.m.

But overall, it was a good time! He generally seemed to tolerate his food, and we were very pleased!

After the meal, Mommy gave him the spoon for playing (photo below)…which he then dropped…and then he complained about it in the video at the bottom of this post!
Feeding himself? Nah, just playing, February 19, 2009, 7:16 p.m.
