At first he just pushed them around and played with them. After a while he realized that he could pick them up. And then eventually he grabbed a Cheerio, shoved it in his mouth and ate it. Alana and I cheered. He was thoroughly encouraged and began eating more and more Cheerios.
The love affair had begun.
At 11 months he is still obsessed with Cheerios.
- They are a source of nutrition
- They also serve as a form of entertainment when he throws them on the floor and laughs
- Not only does he eat them, but when he is finished with them, he starts feeding them to me as well
- When he is in his car seat for a long ride being fed Cheerios makes him feel at ease.
