Oatmeal for Breakfast

Every morning Westin eats oatmeal for breakfast. Until he was 12 months it was plan oatmeal, which is probably the equivalent to eating paste.  We recently introduced oatmeal packets and he loves them even more. He usually starts with cheerios on his tray so we can get the water heated up and then the oatmeal to cool off for him. 

Westin has also started to only eat certain things with a spoon. He does ok but he usually starts out with it then gets sick of it and goes for it with his hands. He never gives up the spoon and most certainly doesn't want our help. Frustrating. 

Starting with the spoon.

Diving right in with both hands! 

He usually has a bib on and when we forget it its a nightmare to clean up because usually he has half of it on his chest.

A cute video of him being cheesy.  I took his tray away in effort to teach him to not throw his food. If he is done with it our doesn't want it, it goes on the ground. It irritates the heck out of me! So if he does his tray gets taken away. Its been a few months of this and he has shown no signs of change.

I love it! It's a huge mess but would you trade a little clean up for that bliss? He's so stinking cute!

So cute. And Cohen makes a huge mess too. I think he gets more food on the floor than in his mouth.

Oh man. I think Westin and Emily were friends in heaven because they both have that "goofy put on a show"ness about them.
