First Spoonfuls

November 28, 2007

Bowl & spoons

Over the weekend the boys got their first taste of rice cereal.


Owen wasn’t too sure what he thought about it.

He liked it better on his face than in his mouth.

Duncan was more sure of himself.

So sure, in fact, that he wants to feed himself his first spoonful.

He’s quite determined.

    Aww, so cute. Wow, feeding themselves has begun, huh? Look out. your pics are so good…lighting, color, angles, and of course expressions. Were you holding the camera w/ one hand and feeding w/ the other , or did Josh snap the shots? love the way your boys’ personalities show even in the little situations!

    they’re starting to resemble you and Josh more. If grabbing the spoon to feed himself gets a bit old for you, try giving him a spoon to hold in his one hand while you feed him w/ the feeding spoon.

    (Laurie…wanna place bets on how long Danielle continues to use 2 different spoons to feed the boys?) 🙂

    Briana, Good idea about the extra spoons. The other day I gave them teething rings to play with while they ate and that worked too. These pics show the first day when Josh was helping me feed them, hence the two spoons. Usually they share, like they do with everything else!

    No, Zoanna, I could have not have gotten such good shots while feeding them too! Josh took these pictures. He’s great at it!

    Sounds like your Duncan is a bit like my Evan…you will have to watch him like a Hawk!!!
    The extra spoon thing works…until they figure it all out.! You can’t pull a fast one on Evan for very long, he is a smart cookie that young one of mine!
    The pictures are priceless! Great shots.
