It has begun in earnest....laughing at Chipmunchkin as she tries baby foods.
Last night I gave her the rest of her oatmeal cereal, which she gobbled up happily. Then, I spooned out a small amount of green beans from one of those 1st foods small taster containers into a little cup, and put some on her spoon (praying that the negative reaction last week was just due to the ear infections, RSV, and general feelings of yuck)
She opened her mouth expecting cereal and....did not appreciate the switch. Total expression of "how could you betray me? What on earth is this nasty stuff in my mouth??"
We did about 5 or 6 half baby spoons of green beans, pausing between each bite so she could do what she wanted. Several times she shuddered, on other occasions, she actually gagged and behaved as though she were going to throw up.
She managed to spit out the last big bite onto her bib. Subsequently, she grabbed her wipe cloth (dampened to wipe hands and face after feeding) and was trying to stuff it in her mouth, as if she could wipe away the taste. She kept her mouth open a good 45 minutes afterwards, I assume to prevent herself from swallowing any more than she had to.
DH and I, nasty, evil parents that we are, were laughing like lunatics at her reactions.
Tonight's adventure- peas!
