First Food: Peas
This was Josephine's first time to try pureed peas (peas are one of my favorite foods). We tried them again since then and she seemed very curious. I have been reading about ways to introduce solids to Josephine and found Baby led weaning. It isn't focused on weaning which is something we aren't looking to do specifically. We just want her to try foods. I loved the idea of not having to puree every single thing we give to her.
Today I gave her a decent sized piece of my banana. She picked it up off the table and crammed into her mouth. She looked as if she was nibbling it and saying "finally you get it mama. Just give me the food I know what to do!" Not that she ate all of the banana. She would remove it from her mouth and feel the texture of the banana with her hands. Put it back in her mouth and then smear it on the table a bit. It was pretty amazing to watch her in action. We are hoping to try a new food this weekend before Peter goes out of town to Brasil for work. Maybe sweet potatoes? Maybe peas? We will keep you posted about our adventure into foodland.
