Lately, Wombat has moved on from “first solid food” to “I want whatever that is you are eating, NOW!”. So far he has confiscated and tried: salami, chips, tangerines….. He learned that he LOVES tangerines and would like to eat a bag full of them. Unfortunately, the pediatric experts that be say citrus can cause allergies, so Wombat is not allowed to have tangerines – and I am reduced to eating them under the cover of darkness, when he can’t see them and lunge after them.
He seems to be having quite a good time discovering new foods; the only downside now is that our meal times are spent hiding food we are eating from him. For crying out loud, he doesn’t even have teeth yet! Well, here is a video of our food monster eating sweet potato (being introduced by Dad). Quick, hide your caviar!
