Milestone!




For the past few weeks, Josie has been very interested in this eating thing she sees her family doing. She's watched us and moved her mouth as if she were chewing and even made grabs at plates of food. Now that she is six months old, she is getting introduced to solids and Saturday night was the first time. 

She was more than ready.

My baby girl loved, and still does love, avocado. One rule I instituted very early for high chair feeding was no dog in the room until after the child was done. Otherwise, the entertainment value of throwing one's food to the dog tended to overcome the desire to eat. The dog did, however, do a fabulous cleanup job for me!

What a step for a little one and how great that you were there to record it.

Ooh, good tip, Karen!

Super that it takes 4 adults to feed a tiny little one! But if you want to record first bites for posterity...well then, make it a family affair!

I’m loving your chronicle of Josie’s development. Someday she’ll be grateful that you recorded all this. Can’t wait for her first steps, and at the rate she’s going I think they’ll come earlier than most..

Our Violet has been eating oatmeal since her 6-month checkup. She will have something new (sweet potatoes) for Thanksgiving. What a treat to see each milestone.

Go Josie what treats the world has for you, enjoy! xx

What a treat that little girl has coming tasting your wonderful cooking and eventually helping you cook.

I just noticed...what a BIG spoon! Almost like a little shovel. But it seems to work quite well.

It was a makeshift -- her daddy didn't want to use the silver coffee spoon I offered (too hard and the edges seemed sharp) so he grabbed a little wooded spreader. It worked fine but today I bought some proper soft and rounded baby spoons.

Makes sense. I knew you would not do anything like using a s little metal shovel. A spatula seems to have worked just fine. And Josie seems to love the change to real food.
