Sweet potato puffs

We've recently introduced Wesley to his first finger food.  These are sweet potato puffs from the Gerber graduates line.  He still has issues getting them into his mouth but occasionally he manages it.  His eyes light up when we pull out the canister now and he opens his mouth in anticipation.  I think they have sugar in them, so he only gets 1 or 2 puffs at a time.  It's good practice for his fingers though.  (We tried to get him to eat little pieces of banana this weekend, but he wasn't having any of it.  I think the texture was too weird for him.  We'll have to try again since the banana is probably a lot healthier for him than these puffs.)

You're right about the sugar. If you feed him 65 puffs he'll get 1 gram of sugar - OH NOOOOOOO!!

I think he can handle it. By the way, expect him to wig out every time you take the puffs container out for the next year. I recommend putting his xmas presents in those containers - you'll get a much better reaction.

Poor guy! He has *almost* enough coordination to get them to his mouth. I am sure that will quickly improve now that he has puffs for motivation.

Love it!

I love how wet his fingers are! Apparently he has figured out that instead of working on his own coordination, he has to work on tricking mommy to provide the necessary coordination ;-) Very cute.
