Brody has officially been eating big boy food for a week! We started with a sweet potato. At first he was a little weary of them he would take a bite of the creamy mixture and then he would take break :) About halfway through his bowl he decided that he was done. I think that next time i will put them in the food processor to make the potatoes a little creamier!
Next up on our list are acorn squash, carrots, green beans & peas! And then as soon as we get through a few days of each, so we know he is not allergic, we will have free range of those!
His second veggie we just tried last night.... Avocado! And he LOVED it! I think he would have eaten the whole dang avocado if i would have let him :) But he only got about a fourth.... we decided since it was his first time eating avocado, it was probably best to test it out just in case it reeked havoc on his little tummy. Every time i would dip the spoon in the bowl and come out with some of the green goodness Brody would open his mouth wide and lean in so he could get the spoon to his mouth as soon as possible! It was so adorable how much he enjoyed it! And when i took the bowl away he started banging on his little highchair tray as if to say, "Hey! I was not done with that!"
My goal is to make his baby food. I know working moms that have done it and say it saves them a ton of money and its really easy! I think the plan is to take one day and steam, boil or bake all his veggies, puree them and then freeze them in an ice cube tray. After that has frozen you pop them out and store them in individual Tupperware, so the serving size it made! All you have to do is grab and go but its still homemade! This is the idea at least :)
Oh the excitement of food! And we all know how i LOVE food, I think Brody has inherited that from me. (see for yourself --->)
Until our next feeding...
