    Teagan is pretty much on table foods now. Eating has really clicked in the last few weeks. We've discovered that she really likes artichoke, corn, green chile and cheese tamales, and smoked fish (we don't usually eat fish but her G-pa caught and smoked it so I gave it to her as an extra special treat). While camping, I cooked up a pack of Mac & Cheese. It was organic whole wheat mac and cheese but still not the greatest meal I've ever made. I gave Teagan a bite and she nearly attacked me for more. Seriously, she was chasing me around the tent grabbing at my bowl. Her reaction actually frightened me a bit. This kid likes junk food .

    That's so funny Erin! Can't go wrong with cheese and pasta.

    I figure we should appreciate their non-pickyness while it lasts. My next door neighbor's boy is 9.5 months old and he's decided he hates foods that he previously liked. (Though part of me wonders if he's wanting table food and she refuses to give him anything but purees still.)

    I have DS trying more meat and more fruits. So far he's had no issues with the more acidic fruits. He loves the taste of meat, but won't really eat it like he does his veggies. Not going to complain about that one!

    Finally joinin you ladies! We are a little late to the food game but have arrived. I think we are on week 3 of foods now and have gone through the basics: apples, squash, and banana. My new baby steamer/blender thing finally arrived so I got to make some new stuff this weekend. I seriously lack time for big batches of food making with this LO so the steamer has been such a help. Chunked some for the food before making it into a puree and he actually ate some of it without gagging! Huge step! Also he was putting the puree & the chunks in his own mouth so it has finally started clicking. Yay.

    The 2 things I made:
    Beets & Banana---Very pretty and a big hit.
    Apples & Blueberries--Another hit.

    Sooo great to hear he's doing well with solids & eating them on his own!!

    I think Sophie is getting bored w puree's and much more interested in our table food. I'm very much ok with this, even tho I don't always make the best foods. You ladies put me to shame!! Anyways, that aside, Sophie seems to be doing well with small chunks of food; however she isn't picking anything up and eating it... She'll see it on her tray, swat at it, smack it but she won't pick it up and put it in her mouth. She freaks until we put it in her mouth for her. What are you ladies doing to help your LO's get the idea of picking up the item and putting it in their mouth?? I mean, she does this with everything else, why not her food??!!! LOL

    For the longest Aiden found it easiest to pick up long, thin pieces of food. He still does, but is now able to pick up smaller his sized bites of food. I think longer pieces are easier to see and aim for to pick up. They can grab them with their whole hand versus just a pincher grasp. Worth a try to see if it makes a difference.

    For the first time yesterday i just gave Lucas some food and let him go at it. I gave him a mum mum and some banana. The mum mum i put in his hands and he just ate it in like a minute. The banana i put chunks on his tray and he just kinda smushed it around and squished it into his face.

    Yay Joy! Welcome to messy baby feeding!

    I started with long skinny sticks and baby fist-sized chunks. Now she can get pretty much anything in her mouth. That most certainly doesn't mean that's where it goes. I'm just saying she can if she wants to. She can also guide a spoon/fork properly into her mouth. Again, she can do it but mostly chooses not to.

    Odin was the same way putting everything but food into his mouth. He liked putting the spoon in there but that was it. It just clicked the other day for some reason. I kept putting little chunks onto his tray, holding them for him to see, having him grab them off of my finger, putting into his mouth, ect. Seriously, I was like "you'll eat a lego but not the yummy bannan?" I guess it just one of those things that they will do when they want to.
