Ryder really wants to be eating real foods, but he is still lacking all the necessary teeth to make the proper transition. I've been getting creative on feeding (since he won't eat baby food) the other day I fed him rutabaga, peaches, spaghetti, but he still wanted more... I had some home made black beans so I gave him one to see if he would eat it. He ate it and seemed to enjoy it so I put a bunch on his tray. He just looked at it and lowered his head and ate it piggy style. He apparently really enjoyed the beans.
