Fun with food...sort of

Now that Jack is almost 9 months old, I am trying to expand his palate and offer him a variety of both pureed and finger foods.  While he eats the pureed foods like a champ, finger foods are proving to be more of a challenge.  Tonight, for instance, we were eating dinner at a restaurant and I ordered a small plate of steamed carrots.  The carrots (which put together would not even equal one whole carrot) cost $4.75, and he threw them all on the floor.  Last night I made steamed broccoli, with butter, and again, he played with it and then threw it on the floor.  I have also tried baked cinnamon apple and bananas, but most of it ends up on the floor - my dogs have quickly learned that under the high chair is the place to be! Although this ends up in a great big mess for me (and the dogs) to clean up, it is fun to watch him explore new foods, and hopefully at least eat some of it!
At least he got something into his mouth.
Sometimes his hands just get in the way!
Bananas are great for squishing between your fingers.
Such a kissable face, even with a coating of banana!
He hasn't quite grasped the sippy cup concept either...
