Her chicken lunch she ate but still not too fond on the texture. Made an apple blend and she loved it as her dessert.

I made chicken and pears today so will try the pears tomorrow and chicken after that.
Do ya'll go the full 4 days in between? I've noticed I've started doing about 3 days.
Now DH fed her for the first time yesterday - oatmeal with apple sauce and he just kept going nasty about the oatmeal. Well she liked it so he finally stopped, but I just wanted to pop him. I don't want her on his diet of donuts and chips.
I try to wait 4 days, but it ends up being 3 most of the time. The only one I really took the whole 4 days was for sweet potatoes, we couldn't tell if he was teething at night or had a tummy ache...it ended up being teething.
And I would have totally popped DH for that too Lena. My DH was all excited to feed Wyatt the first few times, but that was it. He hasn't fed him in over a week cause obviously I needed more things to worry about during my day

My hubby rarely feeds Kaysen solids. It's like it's my job. The couple of times Jeff has fed him, he continually made comments about the mess Kaysen was making on his face and hands.

DH feeds Emy solids on the days I try to work, he lets her get all messy and I hear them laugh and giggle.
Today Emy wouldnt eat the sweet potatoes, she was ok with them before but I guess now she decided she wont have them, she was hungry because she ate her milk, I have to mix something into the sweet potatoes so she takes them next time.
I got Ava those Gerber Yogurt melts. She wasn't so sure at first, but after a couple she decided that she loves them. I had one to make sure that it really melted. They weren't so bad. It's funny because every thing that she picks up goes in her mouth. She picks these up, but WON'T put them in her mouth.
She had some garlic mashed potatoes tonight. She first had the body shudder going on, then she whined for more. Silly girl. That diaper is going to stink tomorrow.
Nat's teething again so her tummy is upset again, ack! Tonight's dinner was a slice of whole wheat bread (to help with the teeth) and a bottle. She really wasn't happy with her apples which she loved yesterday. .
I think I am going to do peaches tomorrow with her cereal, then peas in a few days followed by carrots. Really need to get more veggies going, she was trying to get my salad today.
Another question. I have done chicken, what other meats or proteins can I do? I really like chick peas, are those alright? Can I make a mild hummus for her? What about beans? What sorts are best to start with? Kidney? Pinto? Black? and should I use dried or canned?
I love all sorts of foods and would like to share so much with her. Just want to make sure everything is safe.

We scored fresh peaches from the Okanagan, yay!! I can't wait to feed them to Evie, may have to wait until we return home. Then we'll give her chicken in chicken broth next weekend.
DH shares in feeding her. I let him pick one meal to feed, and I feed in the other. Some days I will feed her both meals; others DH feeds her both. However, I always seem to be the one that has to prepare her baby food.
