First Foods


First Foods from Xivonne on Vimeo.

The first thing we did when we got home from our epic Christmas travel adventure was give little E some solid food. We were having potatoes for dinner, so we thought a potato would be as good as any food to try. I mashed a little up, mixed it with some expressed breast milk, and gave her a couple spoon fulls. She didn’t take to it very well. Day 2 was banana + breast milk, which she LOVED. And basically ever since then, she’ll eat just about anything I give her. Even potatoes.

After seeing her love affair with paper in full swing on Christmas morning, I thought she might like some nori (dried sushi seaweed sheets). She’s a big fan. Crinkley, dark, fun to eat. The picture at the top is her yogurt smile. This baby loves food. All food. Favorite food? Probably water. She starts making gorilla noises and shaking her arms and legs whenever I pour a glass. Least favorite? Hard to say. Maybe fava beans. Sorry, grandpa.

    Yay! Solid foods are so fun! Allie loves peas and prune juice the most. Hates rice cereal (probably because it’s boring), so we stick with anything colorful. She’s also a fan of teething biscuits since she can hold them herself. Love that video and E’s reactions!!
