I'd expected a grand opening-night performance. I'd anticipated cute gummy munching and I'd prepared myself for instant mayhem and mess.
But instead, over the past few weeks John has gradually, gradually come to appreciate the daily pleasure of food.
It wasn't a spectacular show and it wasn't a sudden success. But with each new taste we have watched as his disgust has changed to distaste, and then his distaste has turned to delight.
Until all at once, now that all the excitement and expectation have dissipated, he has swapped his grimaces for grins and joined with the rest of the Gordon household in savouring one of life's greatest and most abundant joys.
Welcome to the dinner table, little boy, we've got so much goodness to share with you...
I'm a brand new mummy discovering the pleasures and pains of staying at home and watching my little boy grow. I like to write, to make things and to wander in the great outdoors. I've created this blog to document my days and capture some of my thoughts before they flit away.
