It is kind of a Mommy’s right to laugh at Baby’s funny faces when he tries new foods, right? Well, even if I have a sick and twisted sense of humor, I had been looking forward to it for quite some time. However, Grae has been eating solids for almost three months now, and I have yet to get a real good funny face. So, I decided to turn up the volume and give my poor, unsuspecting baby a lemon to munch on. As I waited in giddy anticipation for a perfect pucker, he licked it, inspected it, then went right back to slurping and nibbling it as if it was candy, like he was just so grateful we finally gave him something with a little flavor! WHAT?!!
I guess my dream of winning America’s Funniest Home Videos with the Puckered Lemon Baby Face video is kaput.
Those are the funniest pictures of Graeson and the lemon! We wouldn’t have believed he didn’t pucker had we not seen those pictures. We laughed and laughed even though it was sort of a mean trick.
As a former foster child, I have so much respect for anyone who takes children who desperately need to be loved into their homes. The good ones are hard to find, as I have experienced. I have nominated you for the Sunshine Bloggers Award. Check it out here: http://mamasmumbojumbo.blogspot.com/2012/07/award-for-me.html
What a lil cutie! Good thing you were able to capture it on camera! Looks like he was the one who pulled off a trick on you right? Munching and smacking that lemon like a candy!
