So what does he do? He just decides it's time... to surprise me.
Today at lunch with the Improv Lawyer, we ordered off the Kids' Menu, after helping him to color on it with the crayons they left him. He didn't even try to eat them.... much.
He did, however, surprise me by eating a baby-sized portion of the Chicken and Noodles I ordered for him.
KFP's infallible internal clock has decreed that it is now time to try solids!
You can beg and entice, but baby won't eat until he's ready.
