Real Food!

I forgot to post this last week... At Hunter's 6 month appointment, the doctor gave me the okay to give Hunter baby food - veggies first. So on April 6th, Hunter had his first taste of real food - sweet potatoes! Now, if I was a baby, that would NOT be my first choice of foods to try but I figured those were the most mild out of all of my choices. He made some pretty funny faces with the first few bites but after that, he continued to open his mouth for more, so I guess he didn't think they were too bad. Above is a pic of his first bite...

After a few days, I introduced peas to him. He made some funny faces with those too but still continued to let me put them in his mouth - just like he did with the sweet potatoes.

And yesterday, I introduced carrots. No funny faces this time - just grunts for more! I thought that he liked the sweet potatoes and peas, but after seeing his reaction to carrots, I know he definitely prefers carrots over the others! He ended up eating the ENTIRE thing of carrots in that first sitting! He liked the carrots so much, that he decided to smear them all over his head! And of course I documented it...

What a doll, I will have to keep carrots in mind when we go that round. Aubree has her 4 month apt next week, we might get to start solids at the end of the month, yahoo.
