Chomping like a Champ
I'm in awe of how quickly Cary has taken to solid foods. In just a month, she's had:
- Rice cereal
- Sweet potatoes
And more recently, we've added yogurt, tomatoes (mixed with other things), cheese (also mixed with other things), oatmeal and blueberries!
I've made all her food so far, and I've really enjoyed it. I like to cook, so the creativity I have in cooking gets to carry over to making food for Cary. I've been using Annabel Karmel's book, First Meals
, as inspiration, and sort of improvising from there.
I've always liked to make smoothies, so this morning I threw a bananna, some yogurt and some frozen blueberries in the blender, mixed some of it with oatmeal for Cary, and drank the rest myself. Very cool!
At the same time, I get sad when I see how fast she's growing, and I'm constantly amazed by how much she is changing.
