This picture was taken early last week when Aiden first tried sweet potatoes. He loved them and ate at least 3 spoonfuls. He is getting better and better with eating, getting more and more in his mouth every time. He is still not eating a lot (not even 1/2 a jar at a time), but we'll get there. He also likes peas, pears and bananas. The jury is still out on squash- we'll try it again today. The only thing he has tried that he hasn't liked is carrots. I noticed the 2nd time he tried them his tongue "broke out" (I don't know what else to call it). They say geographic tongue doesn't bother the babies, but I can't help but think there is some relationship to Aiden not liking carrots and the fact that they make his tongue all....geographic!
I am sure we will have many more sweet successes to celebrate in 2009. Aiden is hoping the tooth (his first- a bottom eye tooth) he has been working on for the past 3 weeks makes an appearance VERY early in 2009...so is mommy. I hope all of my blog buddies have a lot to celebrate in 2009 as well, especially those still waiting for their precious children.
