not a banana boy

6 months!
If Elliot had a personal ad, it would go something like this: "Hello! My name is Elliot. I'm six months old. I like long walks on the beach, drooling, and my plastic keys... but I don't like bananas."
Did you catch that?? Elliot is six months old today!" To celebrate, he tried banana for the first time. I was fairly confident that he would like them, since all my books said that bananas were one of the most widely accepted {and enjoyed} first foods. Well, apparently Elliot didn't get the memo. He didn't like them at all! First, he tried a bite of the whole banana, and he didn't like that. Then, I mashed it up and mixed it with a little formula. Nope. Finally, I tried to just sneak some into his cereal... and he wouldn't eat that, either!! I have to admit, I'm a little disappointed. The bananas weren't super ripe yet, though, so we'll try it again in a couple days.
The official six month post will be coming later. For now, some more pictures of the birthday boy this morning:

He loves those keys

    My daughter didn't like bananas at first either, then I found a banana flavored cereal and she devoured it! After a few weeks, we tried again and she ate them like she'd always loved them! To this day, one week she'll love bananas, I stock up, then out of nowhere she doesn't like them, lol! And she's 8, so her tastes change every day!! : )

  11. Happy 6 months to Eliott - ANd I can tell you Julianna hated banana anything at first. Now... she eats banana mixed with anything. Who knows why? It just happens. She also loved green veggies at first. Now... HATES then LOL.
