as mentioned below, this has been the month of really starting to eat solid foods. aside from keeping a box of multi-grain baby cereal on hand, we have yet to buy “official” baby food, and i doubt that we ever will, especially since she should be able to have finger foods soon. we just mash up whatever she’s having, and sometimes i’ll throw it into the mini-blender – like i did tonight with her first green beans. so far, her favorite dish seems to be lentils and rice. but that might also be because she’s had them a lot lately, ever since i made them for dinner but they weren’t a hit with daniel, so i blended the leftovers and put them in the freezer. she also has a lot of bananas, avocados, applesauce, whatever veggie we’re having, and the occasional chicken.
as you can see, she likes to “feed” herself. she gets to about half the time, depending on my messiness tolerance on any given day. 🙂
you can also see our overflowing recycling in the background. apparently, it’s time to trek it down to the middle school.
