When given the choice to feed your baby applesauce or pork chops, which would you choose?
Henry definitely votes for pork chops! And I agree, but Daddy says I am going to generate gasps of indignation and possibly hate mail for this post.
|Can Henry handle a pork chop? Oh yes!|
We were visiting Henry’s Aunt and Uncle for dinner last weekend. Uncle Paul grilled pork chops and corn on the cob. We also had macaroni and potato salads. Aunt Melody asked if we wanted applesauce for Henry, since she knew we had started introducing Henry to solid foods. Instead, I cut a thin strip from the center of my portion and put it on Henry's tray to see what would happen. After our positive experience with pancake strips, I thought a slice of pork chop just might work as finger food.

It was incredible! Henry was completely engrossed in his pork chop for well over 30 minutes. He had a fantastic time figuring out how to hold it with one hand or two. He would gnaw on the end of the juicy strip, then try to shove the whole piece in his mouth. The rest of us were thoroughly entertained. Aunt Melody could not stop taking pictures and Uncle Paul could not stop laughing. We were all impressed with his new eating skills.
