solid foods

a couple of weeks ago, we started b on solids. cereal first, which by the first photo, you'd think she really enjoyed. but please, don't let her fool you.

this child hates rice cereal. and have you tasted it!? if you have, you know why she isn't a fan.

so after a week of rice cereal we moved onto carrots. don't you just love her reaction!?

i really thought that since i worked so hard making baby food carrots for my girl, that she'd surely love them! (if you have ever made baby food carrots, you know that it is not hard. not even a little bit. i didn't work hard at all, but aren't they beautiful!?)

yeah, she isn't really a fan of the carrots either. so we are carrying on. trying other veggies and soon fruits will follow. i am hopeful that eventually this girl will love all the tasty treats i put before her!
but for now, i will continue tricking her into opening her mouth and then laugh when she sits in disgust with the food just chillin' on her tongue.
if you have a baby, what was his or her favorite veggie when they started getting solids?

Sweet potatoes and pumpkin puree were two favorites in our house!

isabelle loved sweet potatoes & green beans mixed with bananas. luke loves sweet potatoes & he's really into zucchini right now ... we can't get much here! don't give bella too much carrots or she'll turn orange! at least that's why my homemade baby food cookbook says! :)
