8-Month-Old Falls 'in Love' With Ice Cream After First Taste

An eight-month-old boy from Salt Lake City may have found one of the great loves of his life in the shape of ice cream, with his first experience of the treat captured by his mother and shared to Instagram on September 1.

Lizzy Palmatier filmed her son Michael’s initial trepidation when it came to the dairy delight, following “a dinner of peas, pears, and breastmilk.”

Her son was, she said, “hesitant to try a new food” but, as the footage shows, “he fell in love with ice cream” bringing it toward his mouth and making a hilarious mess as he tried to gobble some more. Credit: Lizzy Palmatier via Storyful
