A New Foodie

A new foodie is born. Isaac ate his first cereal this week and it was a big hit. At four months, he can't sit alone, but when you strap him into the highchair, he starts to buzz. He knows what's coming ... a tablespoon of RICE CEREAL!!!! Bring it on!!!

Food is for him and he is for food. When he sees the spoon coming, his mouth opens wide, anxious like a baby bird. No spitting it out or messing with it. Although it does still seem to go everyhere. "Bring it on, Mamma!" he'd shout if he could talk.

We haven't seen him for a month, so our first weekend back in the States, we headed for SoCal to see how much he's changed. He must be at least six inches longer. And he's balder. But he is much more vocal and can roll over back to front (sometimes). AND HE LOVES FOOD! He was definitely born into the right family for that. His mom and dad are food and wine lovers, so I can trust they will bring him up properly. With my help, of course.


  1. Ahhhh, how cute is that! We just found out that our grandkids are going to be three hours away - could've been 15 so we're thrilled!! Welcome back :-)

  2. Oh!! How adorable!!! My son LOVED his rice cereal. He was so big when he was born that we couldn't wait the 4 months... I began feeding him at about 4 weeks and he's never stopped!
    Welcome home Judy! I haven't had a chance to read your Peru blog yet, but I will!!

  3. Being a grandmother is the best ever! Kim, my son was like yours and started eating cereal when he was a few weeks old. I guess Isaac has shown a little more restraint.

  4. Today, rice cereal -- tomorrow, four-course tasting meals. LOL

  5. I can't wait to hear how broccoli goes over!

    Congrats to you and your family.
