Okay, so I have tried a few things. I tried those dissolvable fruit puff thingies, and he almost started choking. Well, first, I put a few on his high chair tray and he picked up a bunch and tried to put them all in his mouth! So, I took them away (which he wasn't happy about) and just gave him one. But, I don't think he got it because when he put it in his mouth he made a face and then acted like he was choking (but I could still see it on the tip of his tounge, so I knew he was fine). I think he just needs a bit more time.
I did give him one of those biter biscuits and what a hit! I gave it to him while my husband and I ate dinner and he sat there staring at daddy and chewing on the biscuit just like daddy was doing with his chicken. It was adorable. So, I think I will stick with those for now. Plus, he still tries to help me feed him his cereal and fruits and veggies, which I don't mind. We go to the docs on Wed. for his 6 month visit (I can't wait to see how big he his) so I thought I would ask her some more questions about what he can/can't eat and how many solids he should be eating a day right now. He has about 28-30 ounces of formula and only gets solids twice a day. I am not sure if this is right.
Thank you to everyone who gave advice. It was a big help! Oh, and I posted some new pics of Justin when we went to Disney on my website. http://home.comcast.net/~jenelm/wsb/htm ... html-.html
Check them out if you get a sec. He had a ball! We went with another couple and their son who will be a year old on Sunday. I am surprised at how much the boys enjoyed themselves given how young they are. And I have a ton of pics to look back on! Thanks again, Jenel
