Sweet Potato Puree

Jude had his first meal today - sweet potato puree! Here's a video of the first couple of bites:

It was a little bit dicey whether or not we'd get to feed him his first meal today. We had planned to do it between his 10am feeding and his nap, but by the time we got the sweet potato roasted, pureed, mixed with formula, and him ready to eat it, Jude was ready for his nap and in no mood to try something new. So, we put him down for his nap and tried again later in the afternoon.

He did really well, finishing almost the whole bowl of food! Of course, a lot of it ended up on his face, up his nose, in his hair, and on the bib, but I think he did actually swallow some. I think part of the problem was that the only baby spoon we had was too big for his mouth, so we bought a few smaller spoons last night at Target. We both jumped in the bathtub afterwards to get him cleaned up.

Here are a couple of cute photos of the process:

I love the one of him holding the spoon. :)
