Obviously it was a messy experience. Maybe about a tenth went into him and the rest is all over him, me and everything else around us. The only way to get it all off was to put him in the bath and even then I found a spot on his head I missed when I was rocking him later. Nothing like crusty banana!
It was so odd because he was watching me eat dinner and then I tried to feed him and it was like he was imitating me. The few times we've tried rice cereal he's been so disinterested so it was like a 180 tonight when he was so enthusiastic.
He was very possessive of the spoon, almost like he wanted to feed himself. I think he liked the cold spoon against his gums too. He's been having some teething pain. Plus it's a very fancy spoon and Charlie is a fancy baby. Thanks Luke and Meredith for keeping us stylish when we are covered in banana baby food!
I took some videos to mark the occasion. Please ignore me babbling like an idiot in the background. But really, I never realized how fun the word 'banana' is to say over and over and over again. You should try it!
This first video is at the beginning, before we got too messy:
And that our manners were in a tailspin and it was a banana free for all.
