Observation_: Feeding Problems
One problem that has become apparent just recently is that Ripley is becoming a little bit finicky about his food. Hopefully this won't develop into a problem. I understand that when babies start turning into toddlers they starts to want to be a little more self-reliant. So spoon feeding is really out of the question. We now have to consider that the food we make him should be interesting, tasty, colourful, not too hard on his gums and easy to pick up in his hand without making too much mess. It was a lot easier when he just went ahead and gulped down the liquidised slop we used to give him :) Well, no one ever said it would be easy.
Here is the little fella during one of his breakfast strops. I find this picture heartbreaking, you probably think I am cruel to take a photo of him crying, well that wasn't my intention, he was smiling two seconds before.
