baby dude tries new food

for the past month or so i’ve been preparing solid foods for baby dude.  One of the other adoption blog mommies that i read commented once that she SO enjoyed this stage of mothering because now (unlike during the formula vs. breastmilk days) she felt like she could offer just as good nutrition as any other mom and she could choose to make all of her own food from scratch instead of buying pre-prepared if she wanted to feed her child what she considered to be the best food for him.  I can totally relate to those sentiments.  Perhaps it’s because he’s not eating tons of food yet so it’s still cute and fun?  So far, we’ve had avocado, peas, green beans, sweet potato, banana, oatmeal, rice cereal, carrots (both orange and purple–thanks angie!)  and pears.  I often prepare a batch at a time and put it into these “food cubes” that we got as a gift (thanks, Molly!) and store them in our fridge.  i love seeing them all lined up and ready to go:

i’ve noticed lately that the first bite baby dude eats almost always receives this huge grimace of disgust.  doesn’t seem to matter if it’s his favorite food or something new or something he’s just not crazy about… everything gets a “yuck” face.  so i started trying to capture that face on video because it cracks me up.  i put together a montage this evening.  i hope you enjoy it!
