levi eats cereal

Are you ready for your first bite of food Mr. Levi?
Levi thought he was pretty big stuff sitting up in the highchair.
I thought he would love cereal.
But he wasn’t so sure.
Probably because it didn’t taste like that ice cream 
his daddy gave him a few weeks ago.
I would be disappointed too buddy. 
And then he started fighting his daddy for the spoon.
He didn’t care so much about the cereal part.
We tried again.
And even managed to get a little in his mouth.
But really he still just wanted the spoon.
We took it away from him and he wasn’t very happy.
So, like good parents, we gave him what he wanted.
And then he decided he wanted the bowl too.
Levi’s been eating cereal and trying a few veggies for about three weeks now.
He actually is a really good eater.
Are you surprised?
But he is very easily distracted.
He wants to hold and touch everything around him.
And he is so wiggly.
I don’t think I need to worry about him getting enough to eat though.
When the first thing people say to him is,
“Wow, you are a good eater!”
“Your mama must feed you well.”
I think he is doing just fine!
