Eating lunch



Spenser has been doing a great job eating. He's gotten to the point where he doesn't want mushy baby food. He wants bits and pieces that he can pick up himself! At school yesterday, he had spaghetti, peas, green beans, bananas and 2 pieces of bread. Apparently, he kept eating as long as they kept offering.

Here he is last night at supper with a melange of peaches, peas, and ground up chicken, with a side of dried apple bits and gold fish crackers.

We've also been working on learning to drink out of a cup. He only has bottles while he is at school or with daddy. If he gets good at the cup thing, maybe we can skip right over the sippy cups. He has a way to go though. This is an example of why you don't want to share a cup or drink after him. You might get a healthy dose of his meal with your drink.

7 month update

Seven months crept up on us and slipped by. Spenser has been 7 months old for a week now. As you can see by the picture, everything goes in his mouth and he's quite adept at sitting up on his own. He's very good at the pincer grasp and likes tasting all kinds of new foods. This also makes going to restaurants a lot easier and more entertaining. We went out for New Mexican for breakfast on Saturday and Spenser got to try home fries and tortillas. I didn't think he was quite ready for beans and green chile sauce.

He loves swimming and playing in his little pools. He finds the cats fascinating and hilarious. He continues to be a happy and good natured baby with smiles and giggles for everyone he meets.
