It Does a Body Good

These past few months, we've been on a campaign to fatten Benjamin up. In addition to his regular nursings and meals, he gets to enjoy rich, fatty snacks like cheese, yogurt, and french fries. Even his milk gets a splash of half-and-half in it. Lucky baby! Like any baby, he'll sometimes do things with his food that he shouldn't be doing: smear it on the table, flatten it with his spoon, feed it to the pug, use it as a hair product... You get the picture. This less-than-ideal dining behavior is usually restricted to his solid food, but recently, he's decided that beverages deserve the same treatment. Now we've reached a whole new level of messiness.


I would find this more amusing if that milk coming out of his mouth was just regular milk. I'll spare you the details, but let's just say that that milk isn't the kind of milk you can buy at the store. So behind my laughter at how cute he is, trust me - there are tears.

So FREAKING cute. I can't take it! And at least he's not spitting it across the table! That's a plus side! :)
