This was a monumental weekend in our little world - Clara ate her FIRST meal of solid food! She loved it! We mixed up a little bowl of rice cereal and breast milk (appetizing?? yea - we didn't think so either) and she gobbled it right up.
|she is miss independent - would grab the spoon right out of my hands and feed herself!|
I didn't know when we were going to start her on solids....I was in no rush...the breastmilk/formula meals are so EASY...and really...it's just one of those things that makes me realize she won't be a baby forever *tear* And like with everything else, everyone has opinions on feeding babies...and no body's opinions are the same. But, for us, this felt like the right time to take that next step.
|food went everywhere. like...everywhere.|
For the past couple weeks, Clara has been LUNGING for our food - trying to eat what we eat...going nuts to get a taste of the food on our plates...it so cute.
This next adventure of introducing Clara to different foods will be exciting! We are contemplating making her food in our own kitchen, rather than purchasing baby jar food. Does anybody do this? Are there recipe books for this? Is it easy? Time consuming? I'd love to know what has worked for others!
