Baby’s First Food

the baloney bug Adelaide has been showing interest in food for a while now, so for her 6 month birthday we decided to let her get a little taste.  There are seven million different decisions you have to make when starting solids, so the task was a bit daunting.  And also, once you start feeding a baby real food… you have to keep feeding the baby real food.  And the food.  It gets everywhere.


We decided to skip the oatmeals and rice cereals for a variety of reasons and head straight to real people food.  I chose avocado to start with, thinking Adelaide could hold it herself and it was soft enough that her still toothless mouth could mush up.

Brady also seemed to quite love meal time.  He generally keeps his distance from the baby, but during her meal he was glued next to her chair.  He was licking her feet as food fell, sitting patiently waiting for scraps.  I think meal time just might make best buddies out of these two.

Also, I’d like to give a big internet hug to everyone who sent messages or reached out supporting me since I’ve returned to work.  It’s been so crazy difficult, and I can’t thank you all enough for the support.  And also, tomorrow is Friday.

    And her Mommy & Daddy & Brady!

  3. So cute…have you seen those mesh feeders. I have not had much experience with them but have heard that you just put the food in and the baby just sucks on it to get the food out. It mighe be something you want to check out since you are going the real “food” route. Good Luck!

  4. Ah the faces of tasting new foods. What else has she tried? I remember the pics of the highchair at your shower, looks like it is working out for her new dining adventures. Remember…here comes the airplane, a favorite for every child!
