We had friends over for dinner on Friday night. For the first time, instead of sitting on the table, Isaiah sat with us, at the table!
It was fantastic.
He didn't last the entire meal though (sitting up is tiring!). I ended up popping him in my lap while I finished my dinner. Funny thing is, he'd get mad when I'd put the food in my mouth! He totally wanted it in his...so on Friday night, he had his first teeny tiny bites of chicken, broccoli, and corn casserole. He didn't swallow the broccoli, but he was all about the chicken and corn casserole...and honestly, I'm not surprised on the refusal of the broccoli given his aversion (and actual retching) to pureed green beans or peas when offered.
It was a night of firsts for Isaiah. Along with his first table foods, our baby waved! We thought he had been working on it for some time, but this was the first time it was completely obvious, Isaiah was saying HIII! (with his hand).
Here's a video that we caught.
We bet he'll be talking soon, too. Goodness...we are blessed. Just think, it was only 6 months ago that Isaiah was eating through a tube and living in the living room with night nursing, always lying down... and now he is wanting to steal my table food and sitting up in my lap. Wow.
