The beginning of the end

Yesterday Wes had his first taste of ice cream. The first little spoonful was of lemon ice cream. His expression didn’t change, but he didn’t spit it out either. It must have melted on his tongue and then dribbled down his throat. Since he didn’t seem opposed to it I gave him another taste, this time of chocolate ice cream. His reaction was the same as with the lemon. I fed him a second taste of the chocolate and held the spoon off to the side while I waited to see how he liked it. His face was as expressionless as before when, all of a sudden, he thrust himself toward the spoon with his mouth wide open so he could lick the spoon clean.

I think it’s the beginning of the end.
