Them good eats
I'm getting really bad at recording milestones for my third wee one.
Of course, if I think about it, I wasn't really great at it with my second.
Or my first, for that matter.
An undetermined, very vague "while ago", Miss Adyay (as Panda calls her) started waking up in the wee hours of the morning and I knew it was time.
Babes waking up in the wee hours after sleeping soundly for months has always been the cloodle I needed to begin "real food".
So I began and she loves it. Every single bite.
has been my very best friend these days.
I do use some cereals, but I don't "do" storebought baby food because-well, it's gross. If I wouldn't eat, I won't have my children eat it and have you ever tasted baby food turkey before?
It saves on food bills and recycling too.
I've always prefered just giving them what we have. Things with flavor. And texture.
It's a shot in the dark, mind you, but I wonder if this handy food grinder is the reason I have never had a picky eater and never had a gaggy baby. I'm only on my third child, so I could always be surprised in the future...but so far so good.
Introducing the texture early and the varieties of flavor that home-flavored foods provide MAY have something to do with it!
Besides, it's pretty cool that my not-quite seven month old loves fresh strawberries and avocado.
