Well, we took the big plunge over the weekend and introduced Oliver to solid food.  We're making our own baby food and following the French recommendations for introducing babies to food.  So, it was suggested to start with green beans, so we did and well....the pictures tell the story.

What did you just put in my mouth?

NO.  I do not want this.  I do not like Green Eggs and Ham.  I do not like them, Sam I am.

Um, no daddy, it is not helping to have you hold me.  This stuff is WEIRD.

I know there are a lot of different methods, practices, what have you when it comes to baby food.  It boils down to whatever is working out best for parent and baby - so we'll keep trying.  He'll be getting a little bit of food every day at lunch, with something new introduced every four days or so.  Hopefully each day will get a little better!

After we tortured him a bit, he took a nap and then got up and sat outside with mommy and daddy and enjoyed some time in a big boy chair.  He's just growing up so fast I can't even stand it.  

My life is so rough.

I love my boy. 

How was your weekend?

  1. I remember those days. It always starts off a little tricky. Soon he will be eating grilled steak with you guys!!

  2. Aww hopefully he will adjust to the baby food soon and start to enjoy it!

  3. Awwww! Maybe he'll change his mind about the green beans someday. :)

  4. That outdoor picture is a beauty. He looks so adorable. Kids change a lot at this age; hang on and enjoy the ride.

  5. Too cute! Starting solids is fun (it gets more fun I promise!). We started with Green beans mixed with rice cereal, and he wasn't a fan of them at first, but once he got used to the texture he really liked pretty much anything. Good for you for making your own-that is something I wanted to do but never actually did.

  6. He's getting so big!! I love the bib he's wearing!! Can't wait to see you guys this weekend.


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
