During a trip to the doctor last Friday, I got permission to start Katie on stage one fruits and veggies.
Buying food for her is so much fun. I spend way too much time standing in the aisles of grocery stores debating wether she would like the green beans or the squash, or if it would be beneficial for her to have peas before she tastes bananas.
I love the little jars and little spoons…they look so cute in my cabinets!
Feeding her is fun, too. I love to watch her face when she tastes something new for the first time.
A pureed vegetable dinner, however, is not without its challenges.
Katie has recently learned to blow raspberries, and now she has found that it’s much more fun to blow raspberries made out of carrots (and rice cereal, oatmeal, bananas and squash, so far…).
Basically, every time I hold the spoon up to her mouth, I have about a 50/50 chance of getting the food shot right back at me, wether she likes it or not.
I’ve learned not to dress for work before feeding her breakfast.
The act of coating me with veggie puree must be hysterically funny, because it’s always followed by squeals of delight from Miss Katie.
I’ll admit, as hard as I try not to, I usually laugh, with her.
