Colin has been a reluctant eater -- until he ate a whole twice-baked potato at his Grandma's house last weekend.
For about two months now, I have been trying to coax him into opening his lips to try just a little bit of food. No matter what the offering, he made faces like this. He flatly rejected every food I served. He is seven-and-a-half months-old now. I was starting to get worried.
My, how things have changed in only one week.
In the past few days, he has enjoyed quinoa, oatmeal, avocado, banana, zucchini, sweet potato, cheese, Cheerios and yogurt. We've gone from zero meals a day to three full meals.
With his chubby thighs and ample jowls, Colin has always looked like a baby who loved his food.
Now, it finally seems like he has the appetite to match.
