Cillian has been eating actual food now for a few weeks, in addition to milk from mum, and milk from HIPP. It is good fun, trying out new stuff on him, and giving him the chance try what we’re eating… but it gets messy!

In addition to whatever sustenance he gets from keys, mobile phones, books, pieces of wood, my nose (ugh!), and whatever he finds under the sofa, he gets lots of fun finger food (pieces of any interesting fruit, cheese, etc) and mashed up fruit, veg, meat and fish. Once strapped into his high chair (the “umpire’s chair”), the fun begins.

I have a good laugh, doing impressions of the different fruit and veg (“broccoli” is a particular favourite… no kidding!). They are generally quite difficult to explain in a blog, so just ask me if you want a demonstration.

What I have noticed, though, is that feeding activity is rather reminiscent of when I did the tiling in my old house in Peterborough… and thus I have renamed it “grouting”. You know… you see a gap, and you cram some goop into it. Wipe off any excess with a sponge, an use it to fill the next gap you see! :)
