A Momentous Moment with Macaroni

If you've seen my FB page tonight, then you've already seen this video.  It makes me so excited that I have to share it here too! 

This afternoon I gave Samuel a plate of messy food (which I try to do several times a week) to let him play in.  He rubs his hands it it, smashes it, and throws it off the highchair.  That's usually it.

But today was different.  Don't ask me why....but when I put the macaroni down in front of him he actually picked up a few pieces and ate them (without gagging!!!)

Oh man oh man.  I'm pumped.  (PS.  Just ignore my voice.  I was paying more attention to what he was doing than what I was saying.  I'm pretty sure I repeated myself a few times.)


  1. YAY! YAY! YAY! What a huge breakthrough. Hopefully, he will do it again. Once he realizes macaroni is pretty good, he might want it all the time!

  2. YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!!! Way to go both of you!! Truly - heartfelt excitement for you! We've had such a long road with table food here - I still congratulate Mary Louise and David when they have "big eater" meal times! WONDERFUL news for you!!

  3. This is so awesome! I need to do the messy meals with Jack way more often.

  4. Yay, you did such a great job of staying calm with him, even though I could hear big time excitement in your voice, like you wanted to jump for joy.
