Miley Who?

Never one to miss an opportunity to grab some attention, Benjamin turned his six-month pediatrician visit into a chance to channel Miley Cyrus in her infamous Vanity Fair photo shoot. Fine, I'll cop to doing a little post-shoot retouching to achieve those same sultry results. Benjamin, however, would like you know that being a model is hard work. It took a bazillion tries to get that one workable shot. Most of the failed shots were attributed to wardrobe malfunctions. We can't give it all away, now can we?

Hopefully he won't wake up tomorrow and tell me he's not getting out of bed for less than $10,000 a day.

Naked cavorting aside, we were excited to find out that it was time to introduce solids into Benjamin's diet. Solids and cereal and mush, oh my! From what we've been told, the introduction of solids will be the beginning of sound sleeping (woohoo!) and the end of sweet-smelling poop (ugh). We decided to start that evening with rice cereal mixed with some good ol' fashioned milk from Mommy.


We were able to shovel in about a tablespoon's worth of rice cereal before giving up, not so much because Benjamin was done eating, but because our sweet baby had turned into a rabid, foaming dog who couldn't keep his paws out of his bowl.

Altogether, I'd say this first meal was a success. Our dining room floor (and Benjamin's poop) will never be the same again!

Benjamin's face as you put the spoon in his mouth is so priceless. He's soooooo cute!!! Worth all the stinky diapers in the world.

You haven't done the lemon thing to him yet, have you? May be too young for lemon...just be sure to have the video camera rolling when he puts a piece of lemon in his mouth.

You're finally doing that wipe-chin-with-spoon thing that you were so excited to do! Milestone for mommy! How exciting! My little hungry man is SOOOOOO cute! Smart mix btw! Can't go wrong with a little cross-pollenation action.

And by the way, did you get written consent by Boo's manager that it was okay to post such questionable photos online? I have the name of a great lawyer in case you need one :) (yeah right)
