For awhile we were not sure what he was doing, however, we did notice that every time he would make the sound a squirrel outside would stop and listen. I think he may be communicating with them.
The video doesn't capture his best moments but you get the idea.

As is the case with most kids and their first foray into utensil foods it wasn't a smash hit. Below is a documentation of the event. Notice his heavy breathing and a face which seems to reflect a revulsion and distaste well beyond what I thought a 5 month old capable of.
We tried again today. Annie gave Nathaniel his first bite and he swallowed it without complaint. Realizing that a failure to catalog every moment of his life would result in something very bad I grabbed the camera, set up the lights, miked everyone and started filming the triumph over rice cereal.
Turns out he still didn't like it. It's amazing to watch that happy face turn instantly sad once that spoon goes in then brighten up again when it leaves.

First you must open your computer. In most scenarios the computer will not be larger than you and you should not have any problems.
Next, you may have to remove some other components if they are blocking the way. In this case the video card is blocking access to the RAM. Remember, it looks tasty but don't eat it.
Finally, you will have access to the precious RAM. Simply pull on it really hard, you may need a hammer, and out it comes. Remember, don't eat it.
If you simply cannot resist the RAM's siren call to take a nibble then try to taste a corner
However, it will make you throw up.

I teach primary (CTR 8s) and sometimes it's great and sometimes it's not. This week it was great. The class began with talking about kindness and ended with one boy on the ground screaming and trying to crawl away from a girl in the class who was dragging him across the room. It was the other teacher's turn to teach this week.
The lesson was about kindness and the teacher had the kids role play the Good Samaritan. The beat up Jew was a wild little boy named Colin and the G.S. (cool abbreviation for Good Samaritan) was a sweet little girl named Sadie. Soon enough Colin was screaming on the floor trying to army crawl away while the Good Samaritan dragged him by the leg across the room telling him he needed to go to the inn. It was like a scene out of Stephen King's Misery.
I wonder at what point Nathaniel will lose his sanity and act like that. This kid is cute.
