Gourmet Baby

We have a gourmet baby on our hands.

She is really growing and seems to gobble up just about everything I make for her.  And we're not talking mashed potatoes here.  Not yet, anyway.  I got it in my head that since I was no longer working I would have time to make her food.  It's not difficult, just some steaming and whirring in the food processor, followed by pouring in the ice cube trays, then packaging into little plastic freezer bags so we can grab what we need when it's time to eat.

It's funny, because I've made things for her that I would probably never make for us, as we're not really vegetable eaters.  Yes, I even roasted two pie pumpkins and made my own puree. And guess what - she liked it!
I guess I'm hoping to have a child who likes more than hot dogs and chicken nuggets and peanut butter sandwiches. I pray that I don't become a short-order cook.  Or perhaps I should just refuse to.

I'm glad she likes avocado, which was her first food after a little rice cereal, and also yogurt. She loves sweet potato and her new favorite is edamame!

She likes all of this. And especially these

It's fun to listen to her whittle them down with her little teeth. She's such a big girl in her high chair that was a gift from Uncle Wilbur

She's over 17 pounds now, so I guess all the good nutrition is paying off! Perhaps my effort is worth is. Of course it is!
My blogging has become less frequent, as I have other things to tend to - like this

The rope is not her toy, it's the dog's--and it's heading straight for her mouth! Whew! Just in time!
