Derrick vs Sweet Potatoes

Today was our first day of solid foods.  It was a big milestone for both us and Derrick.  We peeled the sweet potato and used a mandolin to cut it into french fry stick shapes.  Then the sweet potatoes were steamed until soft.

Derrick's very first taste was interesting.  He took a bite and swallowed, but was very confused by what he was doing

Derrick tried a few bites and we had a few swallows, but his reaction wasn't overwhelmingly positive.  Not sure if he "liked" it or not, but we'll keep on trying

Not much of a mess either, but that was mostly because he didn't 'play' with his food too much.

Happy eating!
