Yep, we started Steven on solid foods (again). We took a while off since he wasn't super interested, and we didn't really want to do the work--bottles are so much easier! However, last week in Clarks Summit, we started up with cereal again. Our friend Eric suggested we put more formula powder in the cereal, and that worked. Steven loves it.
Last Sunday, we gave him green beans, and no surprise, he loves them too. We did that for three days and then switched to peas. Seriously, I'm not sure if he has very good taste buds because he didn't even seem to notice that it wasn't green beans. Today we tried the squash. Again, no real reaction to it--he just wanted it RIGHT NOW. We could tell he hadn't had a good enough nap because he got upset that I wasn't feeding him fast enough. I would have had to have super powers to feed him any faster! He's eating a jar of food at a time, in addition to the cereal, and usually a smallish bottle.
Next, we're trying carrots. This will be interesting since I'm making them myself. I bought frozen carrots at the store (better than fresh because of the nitrates) and borrowed a food processor. I'm planning on making almost all my own baby food, mainly to cut costs. It's better for him too. I'll let you know how that all goes!
What other vegetables should I do? I'm going to do pumpkin after carrots, but after that, I don't know what. I'm also making peaches and pears for his first fruits. Any other food suggestions?
I don't have any pictures of him eating, but honestly, they wouldn't be all that exciting. He just eats it as fast as I can shovel it in, and he never made any funny faces. Oh well.
