Can you remember the first time you tasted your favorite food? If it’s a Southern staple like macaroni and cheese or brisket, you probably don’t because it was engrained in you since birth. Well, friends, this little Texan was caught on camera trying fried chicken for the first time and we think he’s going to be a real wings and thighs man for the rest of life.
In Mabank, Texas, Bianca Garza and her husband, Juan Garcia, took their 8-month-old son Johnny to photographer Traci Lynn Fugitt to capture some precious moments in his early life. Because, as TODAY reported, Johnny loves to eat, his parents decided to get some snapshots of him doing what he loves.
Bianca and Juan placed his favorite foods around him with one surprise: fried chicken. It was actually Dad’s little joke for the set, until Johnny took it seriously.
So as Traci Lynn snapped away, little Johnny had his very first taste of fried chicken, and his expression is seriously all of us.
Bianca told TODAY, “When he was trying to eat the chicken he was smacking his lips … he’s 8 months old, but you’d think he was 3 with all his teeth … We all laughed and loved every minute of it.”
That is the expression of a smitten baby, that’s for certain. We hope they capture his expression when he tries brisket next. That’ll really be something.
