Mason finally caught on to eating solids. Or maybe I should say that I eventually figured out how to get him to open his mouth. Meal times are going well now. He sits in his high chair and impatiently pounds the tray for more.
With the exception of buying one box of rice cereal and one jar of unsweetened applesauce, I've made all of Mason's other food, which I love doing. It doesn't feel like a chore at all. I use my trusty food processor and a couple of ice cube trays.
After the cubes of food freeze, I pop them out and store them in labeled, resealable bags.
He has quite a collection in the freezer already. Thus far he's eaten rice cereal, bananas, applesauce, avocados, peas, zucchini, and sweet potatoes. I have asparagus and carrots on deck.
What are/were your baby's favorite first foods?
