I have also been making baby food. It started because I was out of baby food but I did have a butternut squash. So I cooked it and tossed it into the blender and it magically turned into baby food, really yummy baby food that Baby B LOVED. I took a look around the freezer and found some more frozen vegetables, so for the last week Baby B has also been feasting on Carrots and Green Beans. And he he doesn't know it yet but he will soon try some Peas- He will LOVE Peas too.
I froze the pureed vegetables in some ice cube trays that a super nice neighbor gave me. Each morning I take out 3 cubes for each of the babies meals, by the time he is ready to eat they are usually perfectly defrosted.
And here he is, my sweet little solid food eater. Sure, he doesn't look super happy here, but believe me, he LOVES his food.
I know he loves food on a spoon because anytime he sees a spoon now, he opens his mouth. My favorite moment from the last week came when he saw me holding a pretty big serving spoon and assumed that he would soon be eating. Sweet baby!
