  Well, I've held out on her long enough, but the time has finally come!  Maddex gets food!  ...sort of.  I wasn't actually planning on it, but as it turned out, last night at dinner Riley only ate half of her banana.  I didn't want it to go to waste so I decided to let Maddex have it.

Now I'm just going to pretend that I'm the only one who's child has eaten a banana and that this is certainly as exciting as it seems.  Luckily I have the 60 pictures to prove it.  Luckily I was able to narrow it down.  And luckily I have a video too.  And luckily you don't have to watch it.  But take my word for it, that girl was goin' to town!  If you don't know about the Munchkin Fresh Food Feeder, it's a brilliant invention.  You can put whatever you want in it and basically the baby just gnaws the heck out of it without the worry of a choking hazard.  Hot dogs anyone?

Hope you enjoy Maddex's first food experience while I will attempt to amuse you with my wittiness.  

You want me to do what?  Okay, if you say so...

                                                                         Slimy, yet satisfying.                       Not bad.  Not bad at all.
Actually, this is pretty good.                   Like, toe curling good.                You're the best mom ever! 
      Hey, look!  No hands!                      *burp*  Heh, heh.                    Banana pudding up for grabs!
That was fun.  We should do this again tomorrow.  Now, who's ready to give me a bath?  

I hope she enjoyed that because that very well could have been her first and only time.  You see, along with that Bumbo she's sitting in (which is clearly unsafe), the Munchkin Fresh Food Feeder is now also posing a threat...


  1. No turning back now! Dad use to call this the"shark-roll" look! That satisfying face that only humans make when they have full bellies! Nanny use to feed Cristy with the primitive"infa-feeder", a large short needle looking thing that you filled with, her favorite, bananas with rice cereal. Nanny was pleased to find Cristy sleeping for dayssssss on end and she was as happy as a lark, well they both were! Go Maddex Go!!! These are adorable!

    1. Hey, I meant shot needle, not short needle. Either way, this syringe like contraption had a nipple on the end similar to what you would feed a baby calf with. It had a pusher on the other end, quite the nifty thing to have in the 60's! An earlier version of this food feeder thing you have.

    2. We aaaah so happy to get these -precious little blurbs from your babies. How cute they are. Thanks Britt. love, nan
