Eating Rice Cereal

McKay started eating solids this week. It has been quite an adventure.

Are you ready to come eat? Let's put your bib on.

Okay. Here we go. Aaah! Yep, open up wide.

Mmm. Good job.

Okay. Let's try another bite.

Aaah! Uh-huh. There you go.

That's yummy.

Let me get you another bi--No, we don't put our hands in our mouth.

Here you go--No, McKay. You need to keep your feet down so Mommy can feed you.

Aah. That's the way. Good job, McKay.

Ooh! McKay, we don't blow bubbles while we eat. You get your food all over the place. (Achoo!) McKay! You got your food everywhere. All over your arms and your legs. Let me get a rag to wipe it off.

Okay, let's clean your hands and your arms . . . No blowing bubbles. Okay, let's try another bite. Aah--Don't suck on your toes! We're trying to eat your food right now not your toes. Let's try this again.

Aah. There you go. That's yummy.

Here's another bite. McKay! No toes! I need to feed you right now. No, get your toes out of your mouth. No, you can't blow bubbles either. It's time to eat. Okay, here you go. Yum! Good job. . . .

Needless to say, McKay eats in just his diaper and a bib now.
