He also has grown in his abilities with eating foods. He is no longer interested in purees but in addition to eating meltable baby foods like Gerber puffs he is able to eat soft foods such as avocado and pasta. About half of it still ends up in his lap but he is getting better all the time and seems to really love eating all the new foods. The hole in his palate to his nose and his postnasal reflux are still issues but less so than in the past. Our little baby is becoming a full on toddler!
