Yummmm!!!

She looks at us with longing eyes, her mouth open...she wants a bite of basically whatever we are eating. Lately it seems that pureed veggies it not doing it for our little Jade. I have been introducing solids to her little by little. Instead of pureed vegetables I've been cubing them and placing them on her tray, which she loves because she has been dying to feed herself for awhile now. I have documented Jade's introduction to new and interesting food so I hope you all enjoy!

This is actually the first time I introduced "real" food to Jade. I had noticed I did not have any baby food cubes in the freezer and decided to let her eat what we were eating for dinner. Roasted chicken, potatoes, and carrots. I mashed it up, hence the unattractive appearance in the cup, but she really loved it...it was a success....


I introduced pasta to Jade, and mashed up broccoli and carrots, which she loved....


I gave her a little tiny quesadilla. I put tomatoes in it, I wanted to introduce it to her and she really liked the cheese too...



Snack time....Jade loves to participate in snack time with her sister Hazel (a toddler must)...so I gave her a slice of apple, a couple of crackers, and some cubes of cheese...


I have also introduced egg yolk to her, which she loves to eat & mash between her fingers...


She loves to chew on drumsticks....


Edamame....the perfect finger food...she loves it.....


It has been extremely fun introducing Jade to new food. We find that we are less nervous about it than with Hazel. We still are pretty strict on the sugar and NO juice for the first year but I have been giving her a little bit of fruit, mostly apple slivers for her to chew on, as well as cubed pear, sliced bananas, and prunes. We are loving this stage of Jade's development, and are happy that she eats well....and loves food like the rest of us!! This week's menu includes, cubed yams, mushrooms, squash, more pasta, and couscous.....and we are giving her bits of table food here and there!!!



Love
