Little person, big meal

March 8, 2008

Excuse me as I wipe the tear from eye for this one. Proud Dad time…..

Drake has been a rather tough little bloke to get eating regular table food. In fact, even since he was 6 months old he has been pretty hard to feed any kind of solid food to.. He had a major gag reflex that meant he puked whenever anything remotely solid entered his little cake-hole. He is now nearly 15 months, and it has still been quite a battle to feed him. He would eat small pieces of cheese, and would devour yogurt – but that was it.

 But not today! The last couple of days he has got much better, and today, drum roll please…

Drake ate his first real meal!!!

 Now, I can tell that you are obviously as excited, and as proud as I am. The next question on your lips almost certainly has to be “but Matt… Matt Matt Matt, what did he eat?

 Get this…. Pan seared Petrale Sole with glazed carrots and parsley. Followed by a ton of kiwi.

Not bad for a first meal!

No photo’s I am afraid. I was too busy sitting in awe.

    Last post you said:
    “Danika and I really like to try and find ways to get Drake involved in the kitchen.”
    May I suggest these two things are not unconnected? 🙂
    Great first meal BTW! Maybe he’ll be as good a cook as his Dad.

    Hi Linda
    Well, he has been a long time switching onto regular table food, longer than most toddlers. But as any parent knows, there is no such thing as a “regular” baby.
    We try to get him in the kitchen as much as possible, but a lot of the time it is tricky with being so young. He really just wants to run up to the range, and hit some switches and turn some dials. Not good!
