    I've been loving making Natalie her food, I taste everything and she almost didn't end up with peach puree last I made it. It was baked and tasted soooooo good. Worst food so far has been pureed chicken and that's not nearly as bad as any of the jarred stuff.

    I did green beans last week and they don't puree so well any advice?
    Also what sort of lentils or beans (protein type) are best to start with?

    LOL I know what you're saying about baked peaches. They are so good, especially when peaches are in season. (The last batch I made wasn't nearly as flavorful.)

    I didn't like the pureed chicken and apples I made, either. The consistency was off. K didn't eat it too well. He'll gobble up the jarred meat combos though.

    I have been giving him more and more table food without pureering it - vegetables mainly. Last night he ate green beans like they were going out of style. When I pureed them I added quite a bit of water to get them smooth.

    I know what you mean about tasting and eating some of theirs. I did mango and I used some of it on ice-cream. It was soo good. I did get a lot out of it though so I didn't feel too bad.

    I didn't have any issues pureeing the green beans I made last week. I did have to add some of the water I used to steam them though.

    This week I'm going to introduce fish to Jessica. Last week was egg yolk and green beans.

    I try to do that whenever I can. Sometimes I think it just b/c we got her into the high chair too late so she fusses coz she is tired (cereal is usually the last thing we feed her). Sometimes it's b/c she is trying to tell us she wants to use the potty (I just discovered this during my trip in Vancouver).

    I'm gonna try to feed her cereal first I think. She is enjoying all the veggies and fruits (not so big on chicken but she'll eat it if I mix it with water or with other foods).

    What I found kind of annoying but was grateful: she fights for the spoon and the bowl when I feed her, but she is so well behaved when gma feeds her!!! Not only that, you know how she fusses when I feed her? Well, no such thing when gma feeds her...she just wants to eat and eat and eat! Evie apparently is not so gung ho about my carefully prepared nicely thawed prepared homemade baby food....but when gma goes to make baby food from stuff on the stove, she loves it!!!

    Lastly, I fed her food from the restauarant for the first time while we were out with family during our Vancouver trip. Yams and avocados, which are new to her. She had no problems with either. She was so thrilled to finally eat at the table with all the family!

    Sophia, Emy fights for the spoon too but I dont give it to her anymore and she is starting to learn.

    Today I didnt have the time to go to the store and didnt have anymore yogurt so I had an idea to try cottage cheese, she loves the plain yogurt so how bad can the cottage cheese be. Well she didnt like the texture, dont think it was the taste but the texture she hated. I was eating it so she started to open her mouth a bit because she always wants whatever I'm eating. She had a tiny bit and kept making faces then she took more and started to gag on it really bad. Not sure if that means she didnt like it or she isnt ready for that texture and I should just stick to smooth purees.

    I think I will wait with the meat for a month longer and start it at about 9 months and not 8. Dont think she is ready to digest meat yet. I will start lentils at 8 months.

    Lena got me thinking about introducing fish, so last night I pureed up some of the tilapia that I had cooked for us along with some sweet peas. At first he wasn't sure about the taste, but after those first few bites he gobbled it up.

    Cantaloupe didn't do too well ran right through her. Yogurt did good. I need to add more veggies and proteins, any suggestions?

    These are what she eats in those categories.

    Veggies
    Carrot
    Green Beans
    Peas
    White Potato


    Meats/Protein
    Chicken

    Try:

    Veggies:
    Sweet Potatoes
    summer squash
    avocado (also for protein)

    I have also introduced scrambed eggs to my little man and he loves that.

    I've given Carson little bits of shredded Cheddar cheese, tiny pieces of wheat bread, cooked/mashed lentils, turkey,and brown rice. Some ideas for a little variety. I think I may try him with some fish next. Are there certain types to avoid?
