Solid Food Adventures

Photobucket
It has been several weeks since Ethan started his latest round of teething (his 7th & 8th teeth are in now), and he's just beginning to allow solid foods back on the menu. The other day, Joel and I were sharing some lovely cheeseburger soup (from allrecipes.com), and he had some with us. Turns out, he likes the food we're eating much better than the baby food. And who can blame him? He does still eat baby food sometimes, but for now we're probably going to keep giving him diced up versions of the food we're already eating. Makes my life a bit easier, too.

Of course, he is also still working on his pincer grasp, and hasn't quite mastered the thumb-finger pinch yet, but eventually he got those peas in his mouth. Success!

    So, I am taking time to get caught up on your blogs, and as before, there are just too many things to comment on, so I'll stick with this for now...the pictures of Ethan are adorable, and it is no surprise that he would rather eat the people food. Evan did the same thing, and it is a lot easier to manage. Also, I like your idea of a change of pace in your career. Working with our kids is exhausting, and there are many days that I think about a new career. I hope it all works out for you, and you have to keep us all posted with updates!

  2. Phew! So my kid isn't the only one who can't stand baby food. Sweet.

    And I agree, sometimes a change of pace is necessary to rejuvenate the spirit. Working with really needy people can really suck the life right out of ya if you're not careful! (Wait, was I talking about the students or the coworkers?)
