Fun With Solids!

So Jonas is now happily eating a TON of solid foods. We’re always doing two meals a day and occasionally we fit in a third. Since he still gets the majority of his nutritional needs from breastmilk (and will throughout his first year at least), a lot of our “meals” are more about the fun of experiencing flavors and textures. Just what does this little galloping gourmet love? As you already know, the kid ADORES bananas. 😉 But he hasn’t limited his palate, so he also enjoys:

  • avocado
  • sweet potato
  • rice cereal
  • oatmeal
  • barley cereal
  • squash
  • peaches
  • plums
  • pears
  • prunes
  • applesauce
  • whole-milk yogurt
  • peas
  • Gerber puffs
  • biter biscuits
  • Purely-Os (organic “cheerios”)

It’s a ton of fun to get his meals ready and watch him bang his spoon, cram it into his mouth, drop it a dozen times, smoosh and squash his food, blow raspberries, smack and chew and gum the food, and give me those big grins when he really loves the song-and-dance routine of the day. 😉 Some days he seems ravenous and other days he’s not really interested – but it’s still neat to see his reactions to new foods. He’s getting so big!!!

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.”
