James had his first veggies today . . . green beans!  I always though baby food beans looked pretty gross (and I still do) but they smelled quite nice!  I haven’t been brave enough to taste them, but James LOVED them!  He likes the pablum, but these beans are clearly the best thing that ever happened to him.

He reached for the spoon with his whole body – arms, legs and lips.  A baby reaching with his lips for something he badly wants is the very cutest thing.  Ever.  He grabbed my hand and the spoon with both chubby little hands to pull it in faster, and banged away on his tray when I took it away to get more. He ate half the jar!

Absolutely a success! (Assuming he doesn’t have tummy issues, of course!)
