Silas Eats and First Tooth

Wednesday, April 22, Silas had his first taste of solids. I chose bananas for him to try first. He really seemed to enjoy sitting in the high chair and loved the fact that he was the center of attention among his brothers. He even thought the spoon was a great chew toy. When it came to tasting the bananas, he wasn't too sure what to think. He didn't throw up like Levi did, cry like Josiah did, or open his mouth wide like Caleb did. After tasting it once his whole face would shudder when I would go to move the spoon closer to his mouth. He did open his mouth a little bit a few times but nothing exciting. We're not going to jump into solids full force here, but from time to time will offer him things to see what he thinks. I'm definitely in no hurry and he seems to be getting everything he needs from mommy's milk.

One more thing, Silas' first tooth broke through on Caleb's birthday. It will be an easy day to remember.

He is getting so big. I can't wait to see him in June.

That is awesome! You know, JC loved bananas when he was a baby and won't touch them now! I have no idea why.

He looks very healthy, as all the boys do!

He is so cute! I love that he at least tried them! Funny to hear what the other boys all did with their first solids. Try to get a picture of that tooth! Have a great day!
