Cooper finally got first slurp of mush/food. He didn't seem to enjoy it too much. The sour look on his face said it all. I believe he swallowed a little bit, but most of the rice cereal seemed to come back out and tried to push Dad's hand away.
Feeding Cooper was a family affair. Cadence wanted to help. Shhe couldn't understand how Cooper was going to eat "because he doesn't have teeth." She hears that from me often when she tries to share her food with him!
I started by signing and saying, "Eat. Food." I'll probably be inconsistent with signing until he is about 8 months old. That is when babies really start picking up on the sign and hopefully, he will start signing by 9 months!!!
Let's hope he grows to enjoy eating rice cereal and other foods soon. I prefer to have kids that will eat everything and anything like Chris and me!
