Benaiah's First Cereal Feeding

It's taken me awhile to get around to feeding Benaiah cereal. I usually start my babies later than most people do, so I know that their body is really ready to digest it easily. But it seems that he is ready now and maybe if he gets a fuller tummy before bed, he will sleep better at night. I'm praying for that one.

He liked the first couple of bites quite well.

Wanted the dish more than the spoon.

Lip licking good!

Distraction by the camera.

By the end he was done with it. But he never choked like they usually do when you start them off, and he seemed to take actual bites, which I was surprised by. Still plenty of mess, but we'll get that nipped as he eats more and more. Jonathon doesn't tolerate messy eaters very well, so we have to be on top of it from the start.
So far, so good. We'll see how he does tonight. And soon he'll be eating burgers.
