My DS is a weirdo...

He's been nibbling on solids for a few months (he's only 6 mos, but started getting nibbles around 3 mos). He's been ferociously hungry, and I can't keep up with nursing every hour all day long, so we tried feeding him a normal portion of pureed sweet potatoes. He ate a little, but got bored. I mixed it with some oatmeal cereal and he ate a little more (finally finished it), but wasn't digging it. He was still acting hungry, so I made a quarter cup more, but with more water so it was soupy consistency. He loved it, and kept "shooing" the spoon out of his face. He realized that what was in the spoon came from the bowl, and he wanted to eat it right from there. So, I tipped the bowl up to his mouth and he finished it off in a couple minutes. I was impressed, but that just strikes me as weird...I never thought I'd be feeding my little guy straight out of a bowl.
Side note-it was a lot less messy than spoon feeding, so I'm cool with that

That is so funny! I guess he got his point across though, right!

He loved it, that's awesome! Sounds like you've got yourself a real eater!
