Adventures in Baby Food

We started Owen on solids when he turned 5 months old. We started with rice cereal, and oatmeal. After he adjusted to the cereals, I started making him homemade baby food. So far he has had: Avocado, Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato, Bananas, Applesauce, Pears, Peaches, and Green Beans. He hated Avocado, and gags when I give him applesauce and green beans. His favorite hands down are pears. I really love making his baby food. I like that I know exactly what is in his food, and I enjoy cooking for him. Sometimes it can be a bit of a pain, but I think it is worth it. Plus it is definitely cheaper most of the time. Yesterday I steamed up some carrots and pureed them for Owen's dinner. At first he was not sure if he liked them.

Then he was gagging.

Then, once we gave him free reign to be messy, he decided to maybe like them!
