Today, we experimented with real food. When I went to the supermarket tonight, I bought some starter foods. What I snagged were little corn puffs that look like the old Honeycomb cereal. They're for babies learning to chew and eat finger foods.

So after I got home, we gave him one. At first, he waved it around in the air. Then he sniffed it. Then he gummed it. Then he bit off a little piece and chewed it.

He continued with that for a while - gagged a little bit at one point but got past it pretty easily. He ate most of the puff.

Yum. The next trick will be getting him to use a spoon on his own, and introducing some finely chopped non-baby foods. Expect the serious messes to ensue.
