    1. I cannot believe she is six months old already.
    2. Which goes along with the “I cannot believe I will have a 1 year old in three weeks” feeling that overwhelms me at odd moments. wow.
    3. We tried sweet potato first with our girl~ looks like Josephine did a bit better than Sydney. We had to go back to rice cereal for a while before she’d take any flavors! Have so much fun with this…Syd’s in finger foods now~ trying so many new things!

    I love her so much! Look at her deal with such a new item in her life as people food. Wow. And I am so proud that you bought a squash (I am assuming organic) and made the mush yourself. Thanks for taking such good care of her.

    Yay squash!

    the second time we fed her, she started lunging for the spoon with a wide open mouth. a quick learner, this eater.

    carrie, squash was her very first taste of food–we’re going to do rice cereal next. hopefully she’ll keep liking veggies.

    mom, of COURSE organic. 🙂 and you’re welcome.

  • Meg Says:

    She’s ready to go. 🙂 What a big girl! 🙂

    Squash? Do you want her to never be weaned? After being introduced to the horrors that were, in more innocent times, sharing the supposed safe haven of her stroller, she’s valiantly (but ultimately futilely) involved in a desperate struggle with the instrument of her anguish, cruelly wielded by her traitorous parents in the sixth and seventh photos, followed by a face of revulsion and pain in the eighth photo after the infernal Agent Orange-laden “airplane” made it into the “hanger” in this macabre game. After she manages to compose herself, she steels her face and gives you a look warning you to never stop lactating, as your traumatized daughter will never attempt solid food again.

    To be introduced to food with squash. My heart breaks thinking about the injustice.

    (I’m just going to ignore your comment above.)

    ironically, unkey, it was her first taste of rice cereal tonight that made her gag and puke. rice cereal! she loved her squash.
