Since starting off on solids when he was 6.5 months, Ethan has been taking all sorts of yummy food. But food which is only approved my Mommy and Daddy.
So far he has been enjoying:
Red rice, white rice, millet, wheat, oats
Spinach, carrots, pumpkin, potatoes
Pears, apples, prunes, papaya, bananas
Chicken, and just last weekend, I introduced him to fish.
White pomfret, to be exact. And I am a proud momma to announce that my boy ABSOLUTELY loves it! It was a real joy to feed him his fish porridge. He would open his mouth WIDE in anticipation of the food, take in his mouthful of porridge happily and then clap his hands with GLEE after each mouthful!!! — and then start banging the table for more!!
