Alexander has been eating "solids" for about 6 weeks now. I don't know why they are considered solids since they are so mushed up that they resemble mash, but nonetheless he is learning to eat real food. No matter what I put in his mouth he makes a horrible screwed up face like it is the most foul food he has ever eaten. He first did this with peas, but then continued when I fed him carrots, sweet potatoes, prunes, apples and even when I snuck him a lick of my ice cream.
But this week he has a cold. The poor little guy is coughing and hacking and his nose is running like a faucet. But he seems perfectly content to lick the snot off of his lip. And when I manage to get a kleenex near his face he fights me like he is drowning and gasping for air. How is it that snot tastes better than ice cream?
