Luke vs Oatmeal

I think Luke won.

We finally decided to let Luke have a go at "solids." I say "solids" because it wasn't really very solid. Quite diluted, it was. He did super well, getting most of it in his mouth, which I thought was unusual. But, as his Daddy pointed out, he's always been super great at taking medicine so it shouldn't be a big surprise. Anyway, without further ado, I bring you Luke Andrew Mackay's first experience with both a sippy cup, and real food (does it count when it was still 80 percent breast milk? Ben and Jerry've got nothing on us!)

Here he is... first time in his booster seat.

"So, are you guys gonna bring me any food or what?"

Hmmm... this is interesting...

"Dad, what are you doing? I'm having a drink!"

Open wide!

"What is this stuff, anyway?"

"This is NOT what I'm used to!"

Cross eyes!

He kept looking over at the table where I had the bowl. He knew what was up!

"I can do it myself!"

So excited!

"Got any more food over there?"

Overall, Lukey did really well. We're proud of him. Hopefully I'll get a video up within the next few days. He was able to enjoy a Mountaineer game with his meal. That's my kind of first food!

Looking forward to the video!

Way to go, Luke. You'll be editing manuscripts, writing songs and securing finances in no time.

Sam, just wait until Anne turns 18. You'll look back and realize it flew by!

Grammamack is so right. Why, it seems like yesterday that Sam was battlin' "boatmeal" himself!
