    Sophia try adding liquid to cereal, I think 3oz is way too much, start with 1oz and see if its too thick. I dont really use rice anymore, I use oatmeal to thicken her veggies if they are too runny, I should start using rice again.

    Emy loves her yogurt, she will eat the whole 4oz, usually I eat a bit with her, still only feeding it to her plain, she loves it that way.
    We will start chicken in 3 weeks, I will puree some with carrots and peas and with sqash and green beans. Dont want her to turn orange if she gets carrots every day.

    LOL Jenni, you make it sound way too funny. I have noticed since putting Evie on the potty that she has A LOT of poop for a baby! It's amazing!

    So I finally found the courage (and actually remembered) to bring stuff to feed Evie while I was out having coffee with my coworkers downtown. I just fed her banana, but I had to remember to bring her bib, a fork, spoon, little container, washcloths.

    i almost want to post a HUGE rant about how difficult it is to feed Evie rite now. She grabs the bowl, the spoon, gets distracted by EVERYTHING. Even being very hungry does not stop her from getting distracted. It is taking 2-3x as long to feed her than it did before. I know I shouldn't get upset and that this is playing and learning, but D*MN, eat your food!!!!

    I know what you mean Sophia. When we went out for dinner on DHs birthday I was feeding Emily and DH was feeding me. Our dinner was over so fast because we just ate and went home, we used to take our time, enjoy the food, chill, now it was like a mad rush to get out of there before she pulls all the dishes off the table. But at least she is good, doesnt fuss and cry, at least for now.
    I bought this little cooler bag in BRU and I can put spoons, yogurt, banana and the icepack. I could actually take some applesauce or pears for her if we needed it. I got disposable bibs just for the time I have to feed her when we are out, its a lot less messy and they are pretty big. Fed her yugurt at the mall the other day, I just sat her down on the bench next to me with the big bib and she ate so well and didnt try to climp around.

    disposable bibs...I am intrigued. I think I will get some of those. I need to get an insulated lunch bag too, that's why I didn't bring the yogurt today.

    so... Ellie wont eat green veggies. nothing so far. peas and green beans are both massive failures. massive. i cant mix a spoonful (babyspoonful) into carrots or sweet potatoes because she wont eat them. should i mix with fruit? should i stop trying (and wasting food) for a while and just bring them back every once in a while? i'd like to try broccoli or spinach, but my mom says those arent good for her yet. i better look it up, they had bad research and worse habits when my mom had us.....

    Ava won't eat greens either. But I bought her a jar of mixed veggies and she gobbled that down. You could try mixing them together.

    i did try the mixed veggies, i read the jar its mostly carrots with peas and green beans. no go. after one bite she wouldnt open her mouth, turned her head, and actually shoved it away with her hands.

    broccoli is a 8-10 month food, but spinach is 10-12 so broccoli can come visit shortly,i hope she likes it, because i LOVE broccoli! i also got the bright idea to try some zucchini and avocado, i normally dont eat avocado so i dont have it in the house, but my mom already fed her zucchini bread so straight up might work.

    I would give her a break from greens for a few days and bring it back slowly. I can tell Evie does not like green beans (I'm still thinking maybe from the chunkier texture that DH made in the recent batch), but so far she'll eat it mixed with other veggies or with cereal.
