Peas Porridge Cold
Today we started the triplets on their first vegetables. After having enormous success with rice cereal and bananas, we moved on to sweet peas. But from the faces Arthur made, they weren't exceptionally sweet. Ever the willing eater, though, that did not stop him from gobbling it down.
We've found that Betty likes to suck her peas off her spoon. Rather than opening her mouth, she waits until the spoon is against her lips, upon which she inhales it. Big Betty the human vacuum cleaner.
Coraline had the most fun during her morning feeding. We're not sure why, but she was the only one willing to still dance in her chair as the blob of green headed her way. I still prefer feeding the triplets individually, but when Erin comes home, she feeds them all at once (evidently not minding the larger mess it makes). In the end though, we were quite pleased with how well they took to this gastronomic novelty, and wish that the rest of the world would just give peas a chance.
