Food Firsts

Smiley has become increasingly interested in food. He watches my wife and eat, staring at our faces or tracking the motion of our forks with his eyes. When hungry or soothing himself before sleep he now licks his lips besides sucking.

Yesterday Smiley was 21 weeks old. He tried a sippy cup for the first time. Getting milk out worked okay but he definitely prefers sucking on a bottle nipple.

Today my wife did not have to go to work, so we thought it was a good day to assemble Smiley's high chair and try feeding him rice cereal mixed with formula. He was definitely entertained. In his mind the purpose seemed to be to blow bubbles with what was put into the front of his mouth. A good enough start, I suppose.
