The day after Christmas we decided to try Eli on some solids!
He seemed ready for real food. Nursing just didn't seem to fill him up. He went from eating every 4-5 hours to eating every 2 hours.
So on the 26th, mom bought him a jar of Sweet Potatoes and we gave it a try. At first Eli seemed unsure. But once he got over the new taste he went to town!! It was so cute... He would open his mouth and wait for another spoonful! He even started to fuss when I wasn't feeding him fast enough!
He is still loving his food! We have given him sweet potatoes, apples, and bananas so far -- he loves all of them! Yesterday I went on a cooking spree and made a whole bunch of baby food; Apples, Pears, Bananas, Avocados, and Sweet Potatoes. It was so much fun! I'm hoping to make all of his food from here on out!
