Avocado? Yes! Carrot? NO!

Daniel is eating "solids" twice a day.

To celebrate his eating, we finally bought him a real high chair. He seems like such a big guy when he's in it. Last night was the first night we put him in it and he screamed - but today he really liked it as he was chilling in the kitchen while I was making him some pears.

I can't say if Daniel is a picky eater yet since we've only just begun - but the kid definitely doesn't like carrots. So far I've tried carrots with rice cereal, oatmeal, avocado (his favorite thing) and parsnips and he just can't be fooled. I'm supposed to wait a week before re-introducing a food that he doesn't like - so I can still have hope.

Aside from the rice cereal and oatmeal, I've been making all of Daniel's food. Obviously this is a simple task right now... I either mash something up or steam, puree and serve. I've even started freezing food in ice cube trays. I go back to work next week (more on that later) so Matt will be on food duty. Hopefully he won't be pureeing White Castle for the baby.

Tonight he'll have pears and avocado - one at a time. So far his little belly has met rice cereal, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, papaya, banana, avocado, apple, pear, carrot and parsnip. I didn't use a system and I'm obviously behind in the veggie department - so I'm going to give him peas tomorrow. Wish us luck!


  1. Marni - he's starting to look more like you - definitely around the eyes - knew he wouldn't like the carrots - peas may not go over so well either

    Marni...mix somke peas in to the guacamole and he'll never know what hit his mouth. You might even add a little carrot into the mix.
    I can't wait for Matt to take me and DB to the Kosher Deli in Newark
