Well, look out whomever gets the next nappy ’cause you had your first non-breastmilk meal ever today! Your dad did it on the sly, you just shared some of our lunch with us. Your dad had made a nice platter of things to snack on for lunch:
the first supper - our lunch platter ...
and decided that your first food would be avocado from our lunch platter. So a bit of avocado mashed up on his finger served as your first taste of non-breastmilk food. And you were stunned. You turned your head up and looked up at him with your mouth open for a good two minutes or more. As if to say,
“what are you doing to me? It’s not bad, I don’t think. I’m just very confused. Not at all sure what to do. I’ll just stare at you, maybe you’ll give me a clue?”.
Your dad made munching or eating noises and movements with his mouth, and eventually, you tried to close your mouth and follow suit.

And after the first bit, which stayed in your mouth for quite some time, you started to swallow. And seemed to enjoy it. You then actually started seeking-out avocado-laden fingers and pulling them into your mouth.

I don’t know how much you actually ate, but you definitely swallowed some, and looked very contented afterwards. And were very tired. So then you had a big sleep.
Next time you’re getting Farex though. Farex (rice meal) with boobie juice mixed in. I suspect you won’t like it as much as avocado.
Happy Eating. Welcome to my favourite pasttime!
