Comments for Toast
I spent a little more time today going through my old photographs of Sean. Back when he was an infant, I was under so much stress at work that I just didn't have the energy to do much at all with this site. I didn't start blogging until after I got my present job. So from 2000 to 2004, this site pretty much stayed dormant although I did continue to create artwork, I didn't post to my local galleries, just to the 3DCommune. I also took photographs of Sean but only to do weekly email updates to friends and family.
Anyway, today's picture shows Sean at age 7 1/2 months. Given that he was late and Harriet was early, he's about the same age in this photograph as Harriet is now. Although Sean is a fussier eater than Harriet has ever been, he instantly got the idea of self feeding. He started trying to feed himself around the age of three months. Harriet, now at 8 months is only just starting to feed herself table foods, although she will gladly eat anything that I pop into her mouth.
Sean has always loved carbs. Most of his favorite foods are things that involve flour; bread, waffles, pancakes, cornbread, etc. Harriet on the other hand adores fruit and veggies. Her favorite foods are carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, peas (either as purees or table food) and so on. The foods that both agree on are peas and applesauce.
If I were to give Harriet a piece of toast, she'd make a face, pretend to gag and then spit it out in as messy a way as possible. If I were to give toast to Sean he'd eat it. Sometimes he likes it with jam, sometimes with butter and sometimes plain. He mostly always though will eat it.
