i guess davey doesn’t mind grass:
see that grass in his mouth? he put it there. and didn’t bother to remove it. (we did, though, don’t worry)!
this kid is SOOOOO CLOSE to taking his first steps without holding onto anything or anyone. and he’s SO CLOSE to crawling (though he’s a pretty good army crawler). and he’s SO CLOSE to getting to a sitting position on his own. and he’s SO CLOSE to getting to a standing position (with the help of furniture). any day now, i suppose. any day now.
and he has a 5th tooth with a 6th on the way. i wish i could explain how goofy he looks when he give you a BIG ‘OLE GRIN! see, he has his bottom two middle teeth. those were the first to arrive at 6 months. then, he got a top tooth (not one of the middle ones) on the left side. and eventually the left middle one came in (well, it’s still coming, but it’s through the skin). now it’s the OTHER side (the right not-the-middle upper tooth) has broken through with the right middle one on it’s way. and they’re crooked. his upper teeth. do the baby teeth eventually line themselves up? do adult teeth grow in like baby teeth? poor kid. he’s got such a goofy grin, but i still love him!
and now i’ll ask all of you…. what foods can i add to davey’s diet? aside from baby food (stage 2), cheerios and puffs, here are other things that are pretty consistently part of his diet: cheese (cheddar, mozarella, cottage), yogurt, rice chex, teddy grahams, graham crackers, bananas, rolls, and i can’t think of anything else right now. what else is good to offer him? especially by way of minimal-mess finger foods?! he does get bits and pieces of things dave and/or i are eating (sugary cereals, wheat thins, club crackers, goldfish crackers, potato chips, cake, brownie, ice cream, etc.) but those are not part of his regular diet. he has tried watermelon, bread, rice, potataoes (mashed and baked) and other stuff. but i just feel stuck in a rut. i want to expose him to a variety of foods and he’s really good about trying stuff…. and even if he makes a face, he’ll usually open his mouth for more!
what other foods can i give him on a day-to-day basis that don’t require blending (i’m lazy)?
