Rice Cereal

So, Rock has been really bugging me lately. He really wants to eat a Fix Bar.
But, unfortunately, for him, they have way too many complex ingredients for his little tummy. Instead, a few days ago, we decided to start him on good ole rice cereal.
Rock had to familiarize himself with the box of cereal before we went any further. Once he approved this as his first meal, we got out the bib and the tray for his Bumbo.
Look at the camera in your cute bib!!
First bite... hmmm.... kinda weird.
Rock wasn't quite grasping the whole "you-need-to-swallow-the-food-for-it-to-count-as-eating" concept (note the long line of drool/cereal dripping down from his mouth) so Dad showed him how it's done.
*For the record, that's a smoothie, not rice cereal that Fix is using to demonstrate*
Hmmm... Rock was still unsure. Mom just couldn't quite get him to swallow.
Although it doesn't look like it in the picture above, Rock did MUCH better once Daddy took over the feeding reins. See below.

As you can see, Rock was more enthusiastic about eating by the end of the meal, but he still hasn't conquered the fine art of swallowing. But don't worry Rock, we'll keep at it until you can have a Fix Bar of your own.

Is that your new dining room color in the background?! I LOVE IT! It looked grey at night, but I can see the green in the daylight! REALLY NICE!!! Can't wait to come see it in person!

Don't give up Rock... eating is the best part of the day!

Hey Rachel,

This isn't a comment.. I just don't have your email, so this is the next best thing!

Do you or Fix know of Rev. Ron Svendson from Valley Presbyterian in CA? It's outside of L.A. and I don't have a clue what area you were in, but I figured I'd check on the off chance you know of him.

You can reply to my email which is jezamonkey@triad.rr.com

P.S. You are an adorable family!

They make trays for the Bumbo now?!?! Soon he will be eating so much you will feel like you should just sweep your arm across the entire baby food section to make the process faster of loading all that food into your cart.

I'm glad you specified that Fix wasn't eating the rice cereal to! I was thinking "That tastes to bad for him to be making that face" (yes, I'm talking from experience).

Have a great week.
