Charlie eats successfully!

video

Inspired by my friend Cat & baby tobo, I reapplied my energy to feeding Charlie by spoon. He was taking formula/rice cereal pretty well, so I thought I'd try bananas today. And something clicked, like he knew what to do! The first bite shocked him - his mouth froze up, he just looked at me - but I carried on with a big smile, lots of "oh, isn't that yummy!" in a high pitched voice... and soon he had eaten half the little container, and I believe he'd have eaten the whole thing. He was smiling, enjoying every spoonful. Now, in the video he spits it out, but most the time he sucked it right in. Life has just gotten a lot more interesting for Charlie, I think... but feeding will be a lot more time consuming for us!
