Baby Food 101

So....most kids start eating "solids" (i.e. anything other than bm or formula) around 6 months. Cal started...then promptly stopped about a month later. Since then, we've been feeding him 3 meals a day and he may or may not eat a single bite of whatever it is we serve. To say it's exhausting is an understatement.

Then...tonight...I had a thought. Cal loves to drink water out of a real cup...he gets a total kick out of it and loves to blow bubbles and chug-a-lug...so why not throw some baby food into a cup and see if he'll drink it?? Like our very own Jamba Juice, I added a little water to Cal's baby food and he chugged away!

Granted, he also made a total mess while dunking his cracker in and flinging it over himself, but hey - I'll take it!

(and yes, that's my Dukes of Hazard cup that I grew up with!)
