back to the blw

***Obligatory “please vote for Kellan by clicking here” header***

So…the end of the wedding memories…and back to this baby led weaning thing…because, really, my life is no longer cutty-pastey-arts-and-crafts. My life….

But wait.

You guys…I had my first glass of wine in over a year yesterday. A wine we had been saving for our five year anniversary. We picked it up during a trip to the Biltmore winery a looong time ago…but let’s not get wrapped up in the details.




Soooo….where were we?

Oh. Right.


We tried Cheerios.

And by “tried” I mean I put some on his high chair tray for him to play with and I would break off a piece and put it in his mouth, since he has yet to grasp (ha…punny) the pincher grip. He seemed to like the new challenge and texture – though only for about two pieces of a Cheerio…then he was done.

We tried a carrot, cooked so it was soft enough for him to hold on to but not so soft it fell apart (whatever that happy medium is called) and then cut into pieces like french fries, but thicker.

He didn’t hate the carrot but he mostly just chewed off little pieces, swirled them around in his mouth, and then spit them out all over himself.

I tried sweet potato “fries” – cooked and cut like the carrot.


Basically, I *try* something each day – either the same “something” as a few days ago or something totally new. If he’s not into it, then we’re done for the day. I am assuming one day he’ll decide FOOD IS AWESOME.

Until then?

Boob juice cafe.

I’m in no rush and I’m certainly not complaining about the 500 calories burned a day making breast milk.

PS: Cheerios are the clear winner. Practicing picking them up while simultaneously gumming a piece of one?

Best. Thing. Ever.

For about five minutes, anyway.

    It’s so funny to me how different babies are! I think most are more like Kellan and don’t dig the smashed up stuff too much and want to do everything on their own. So looking back on it, I probably shouldn’t have made so much baby food from the start. Luckily my daughter LOVED it and we just kept going with it. Now that she’s a year, she is pretty well done with purees, but mostly because I’ve stopped giving them to her (still do yogurt, cottage cheese and other spoon fed items though). And now we’re getting into the super picky eater stage where she’s totally hit or miss on whether she’ll eat something, even if she loved it and ate tons of it the day before. So frustrating. But I just keep offering her new, healthy options and hopefully some stick!

    Good luck with everything! (And sorry for the super long comment. I’m wordy. Always have been.) šŸ™‚
