Mr. Handsome on Solids

The time has come... Solids at 5 months 1 week! I'm still a little in shock that he is old enough to be enjoying food along with us at dinner. Scott has been asking to start solids for weeks and finally i agreed to it!  I plucked a couple of carrots out of my garden, steamed them up, and then pureed them in the bullet.  He was placed in the highchair with a bib and ready to test this new food.  And the face he made was priceless~ yucky mom! Please don't shovel anymore of that in my mouth!  So i had a back up plan.... I bought a small container of oatmeal cereal for him. He loved them, and couldn't get the spoon in his mouth fast enough.

Then i bought a few jars of organic baby food from the store of the foods that i didn't have growing in my garden. Peas & Sweet Potatoes. And he loved both of them too!  Tonight i'm going to try green beans from the garden that i did the same method of preparing as the carrots. We will see!  Oh and his favorite thing to do is to steal the spoon as your feeding him. I think i might try cut up foods since he enjoys feeding himself.

Here is a few collections of photos of Mr. Henry eating away.
