First Food

Friday, January 6, 2012

I've been putting off introducing solids to Ezra for the simple reason that we're already quite busy! Plus, introducing solids means that the poop changes, as well as losing the little whiffs left of that blissful baby smell. But, after we battled our first round of less than regular poop with Ezra, I figured to heck with it, lets get on with the prunes!

He wasn't too sure about it at first.

Definitely not leaning forward and eager to eat like his older brother was.

But . . . slowly, he began to like it and smile.

And then he really got into it!

He ended up on the toilet that night as a tip from my been there, done that friend and mom of 3 under three. The position and the prunes helped the little guy out and I got to avoid a seriously messy diaper!

Last night he polished off the rest of the prunes and got to try sweet potatoes!

Oh my goodness, the photos of him smiling with the food all over his mouth is beyond adorable. I hope our future babies are smiley!

Funny how they can be so reserved and accepting at the same time. Prunes and being on the potty... funny but smart! Great tip!

Okay...so what? How did you put him on the potty? Where are the photos of that? (kidding!). Curious mind want to know!

Yay for baby food. We started cereal, but haven't tried fruits or veggies yet. Are you making your own or buying?

He is so darn cute - that smile! Oh!

We haven't really started solids yet other than putting a little bit of food in front of Lilly and letting her play with it. We're going to try the baby led solids route, so are waiting just a bit longer and hoping to avoid making a ton of purées or rice cereal.

Awww I love it! My daughter was the same way the first time she tried peas. :)
