I know you’re not supposed to start a baby on solids until he or she is 6 months old for a plethora of reasons, but what if the baby stares at you longingly whenever you eat food? And then proceeds to stick his fist down his throat? And what if he rarely seems full no matter how much milk you feed him during the day? Emory is a big boy (as in tall, he’s not overweight). I’m not sure I’m going to be able to wait 6 months to feed him solid food.
Sometimes I think it’s possible to read too much, do too much research. The other day I was peeling apples to make a hot apple crisp for TobyJoe and me. Emory watched me the entire time. After I finished, I decided to let him lick my fingers which were covered in apple goodness. He loved it. At first he made a face as if to say, “This is REALLY weird!” And then he wanted more.
I guess we’ll wait a little longer and see what happens.
