Introducing solid foods to Benjamin has been an adventure, and like any adventure, we've had our ups and our downs. On the upside, it's been fun seeing how Benjamin responds to each new food. To our relief, he's loved everything he's eaten so far, especially fresh avocado. On the downside, his poo now smells like, um... poo. You see, the poo of a baby before he starts eating solids smells remarkably unremarkable. Now that he's started eating more than just his mama's milk, however, the smell is very remarkable. Vince had a few remarks of his own the other day while changing a particularly offensive diaper. As he peeled it back from Benjamin's butt, his hand flew up to his nose and he exclaimed, "OH, MY, GOD. It smells like HUMAN sh*t!!" I guess Benjamin has fallen from the status of cherubic angel to mere mortal.

Benjamin exacted revenge for his father's potty-mouthed comment (no pun intended) later that day when half of the contents of his diaper managed to wind up all over the quilt he was sitting on. To add insult to injury, Vince stepped right into the mess as he rushed over to assess the damage. In the interest of decency, I've pixellated the offensive material in the pictures below. I don't want to scare any of my friends into not having children, now do I?
