somebody takes after their papa! my parents refer to papa as “wooden leg” because the teenage boy in him heads for the goodies in their fridge within 30 minutes of arriving at their house, always ha! here a certain little one (with no manners haha!) is licking her tray clean of green beans. she hasn’t met a food she doesn’t like yet hooray! shes also started a pout if you’re not feeding her fast enough even. ohh our clementine :)
our sweet, little clementine has developed quite the grasp and coordination these days. while eating one of her favorites, sweet potatoes, she decided it would go down much better if she grabbed the bowl. one can easily guess where this went to next….
i wish i had caught it on camera because somebody (i won’t say names) was so impressed with themselves and kept giggling at the mass quantities of sweet potato oozing everywhere. and then pure joy on that person’s face when they got to finish their food naked. we may have our work cut out with this one…
we decided to start with purees instead of rice cereal at 4 months. everybody does it differently, so this is just what worked for our family. plus starting with avocados just seems more fun, doesn’t it? and this shouldn’t shock you, but we are making our own purees! we luckily got a food maker from my dear friend, ash, who wasn’t using hers and so we are whipping up some delicious goodies over here. i’m such a nerd, i was so excited about making our own foods for little miss. i mean SO excited.
miss avocado face, nom nom..
zoey, the pup, carefully studying this little human.
our little miss sure did love the avocado and did so well with it too! zoey has realized that little miss may be a future best friend as she kept her eyes on every dribble (probably hoping that there was some bit on the floor, crazy pup). papa has even fed baby and he did awesome, i was at work too! it’s taken some time for him to get comfortable with it, but he was a rockstar of course. we’ve done oatmeal and next up is bananas.
note: she is in a bumbo, but is supervised and we are in process of getting safety belt for recall.
