You may recall that I introduced solids to the girls about two weeks ago – just a little rice and oatmeal cereal – and that we captured it on camera and video. It’s such a BIG DEAL when you really think about it – these milestones are so emotional for Moms, aren’t they? Hailey, as with most things, was so serious!
And today, I made their first real foods. I’m excited to be able to make their food from scratch and there is so much to choose from! What to start with? Well, I thought we’d go standard and cook up some carrot and some broccoli. We even have this cool little storage tray with inserts for baby-size portions. Fun!
So colourful. That’s how you know it’s healthy!
And so I tweeted out my first forays into this new stage and posed the question – what else should I look at introducing? – and got great suggestions. Banana, sugar-free apple sauce, avocado (yum), sweet potato, squash, peas, etc. I also got a very funny link from my friend Dani who wrote a blog post about HER first attempts at making her baby’s own food. Thought I would share. Nothing quite that exciting happened here, I’m afraid…
So. What else did you introduce? What are your suggestions? Oh, and how did you all handle the new and fabulous olfactory-stimulating presents awaiting you at the other end? Holy crapola (pun entirely intended)…!
