Ben recently moved up to the next room at daycare. Rather than feed him breakfast of baby fruit and oatmeal, they said now he should be feeding himself and to bring in something for him. So I made a bowl of cheerios (regular mixed with a smidge of honey nut) with milk. Big hit!

He was so interested in his breakfast on Friday that for the first time in months, he did not cry and run after me when I left. He just sat at the table shovelling in the cheerios and drinking his milk and watched me go, with an expression that said "Whatever. I've got Cheerios."

This morning we took Ben and Dee to the Naperville River Walk, where Ben enjoyed his cheerios. Since we had Dee, we got bagels and ate outside. Dee was anxious to get a move on and explore.

There was no high chair and the tables were way too high for Ben. But he loved standing with Dada to eat. He also loved the bites of bagel with peanut butter we gave him.

Good stuff!

Here is a short video of Ben saying hi and bye and eating Cheerios.
