From conversations with fellow mommies I have decided to also start giving him little bits of regular food not purees so if I am eating something he can have I will give him little bites which so far he loves my apple struedel toast, spaghetti, and mac and cheese. I don't give him enough to be any considerable amount just a bite here and there so he can start having new textures and tastes in his mouth. Today I gave him some little cut up green beans which he would put in his mouth but then I found out he wasn't really swallowing them and he would spit out wads of green bean , baby steps I suppose, at least he was putting it in his mouth!
He does LOVE puffs, the little crunchy things from gerber and yogurt melts which I can put those on his tray and he will actually feed to himself which I was so proud of him when I saw him do this the first time. so of course I took pictures :)
I knew that with time he would eat regular food but I was getting so frustrated, I am so proud of my lil guy for finally deciding to eat big boy food!
