More, peas!

Eli's been intently watching us eat for some time, now, and the past week or so we've been experimenting with food. He mostly just eats off our plates - some spaghetti sauce here, some ranch dressing there, maybe a little ice cream for dessert, and he really enjoys it! To give him more than just a taste, though, I brought out the big guns - Gerber mashed peas. After the peas were gone, he obviously wanted some more big-boy food. He LOVES sucking the juice from clementine slices! I had a great video where he was loving being a big boy and eating from a spoon, but not loving the taste, so he'd open up really wide for each spoonful but then make a ridiculous face when he tasted it! Of course, me being scatterbrained, I deleted it not 5 minutes later, thinking it was just a poorly-taken picture. So I took another, and by this time he was just (messily) enjoying his meal.

Yay! Big boy food! He is so adorable, and looks like he's getting pretty beefy! Let me know if you want me to bring the food grinder up next weekend.

I hadn't watched the video until today but it is so adorable as well. You are brave for letting him have the spoon and not putting a bib on him! I think Jonathan would have a heart attack if I did that, lol! I love how much Patrick is talking, too!

They grow up so fast! I can't believe how much Eli is starting to look like Patrick.
Way to let him get messy, momma!
