Yesterday Eli tried carrots for the first time! He sneezed halfway through his meal, so I just pulled off his clothes and let him feed himself the rest! Haha! Needless to say, he made quite a mess!!
My boy definitely takes after his Daddy; he loves food! He is now eating about 8 ounces a day, four ounces for lunch and four for dinner. As soon as he swallows his mouth is open and waiting for the next bite! It is the cutest thing! So far he has had Apples and Bananas (his favorites), Sweet Potatoes, Avocados, Pears, Carrots, Squash, and Prunes. This week I will be making my second batch of purees to throw into the freezer. We bought some more apples and bananas, squash, pears, carrots, peas, and mango! I'm guess Eli will love it all! The only thing he has completely rejected so far is Avocado, which I was not surprised about because Avocado tastes nasty!
We also got a mesh teether and threw a frozen piece of banana into it! Eli loved it, but of course got his face, hands, and chest all sticky!
Here are some pictures of Eli v.s. Carrots:
