Silas Takes His First Bite

Silas is 6.5 months old now and just starting to grab for my spoon and food off of my plate. I thought it was time to give him a chance to eat table food. Sticking with the baby diet in Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon, we decided to start with egg yolk. Besides, if there is one food we have in abundance, it is our farm fresh eggs with dark golden yolks. They're chalk full of everything this little guy needs.

Below is the play by play of the tasting...




He ate half of a whole egg yolk! Well...maybe not actually.
There was a lot of yolk on his bib and chin. I'd say we were successful and we'll finish that yolk tomorrow.

Wow, I need to post some pics of Finnian because truly, our babies really resemble each other! Same narrow-set blue eyes, fair complexion, and does Silas have a longer/narrower face? The Finn Finn sure does... we must compare them in person. Hmmm... Any good campgrounds halfway between TX and northern CA?

You've got him described perfectly, Marybeth! Yes...he has a very long, narrow face. And BIG ears =))) I think he has his grandpa's face...though we said that about each of the boys at this age. Must be something to do with the bald head. LOL.

LOL! I have thought I see sis-in-law Jennifer's general face shape/feature placement in Silas a bit too, no? And btw, I'm liking the way you are responding within your own comment section. :)

Thanks for the feedback! For years I've been under the impression that people did not see my comments when I made them so I stopped making comments a long time ago. I'll start up again =) And yes! Silas does resemble Jennifer...which makes sense because she has Big Tom's long, narrow face. Good eye!

That boy is adorable! And so is his bib, did you make that?

TnT said...

Isn't he though? I think so too =) Yes! I did make his bib. I love it too. They are so simple to make...I made four of them for Abram last year. You should make some too! I can easily tell you how to do it if you're interested.
