On the menu so far: (in order of happy faces made when eating to yuck!)
Avocado, homemade yogurt, persimmon, egg yolk, butternut squash, grass fed ground beef with onion and mushroom, banana fried in coconut oil. We cook some things in a cast iron skillet for iron.
Finn can already put the spoon in his mouth and actually swallow some food without getting it all in his hair and on the floor:) We also offered him a sippy cup of water and he's all about it.
I really wanted to wait longer but the his pediatrician was concerned about his weight. Though I'm not worried, I think hes just perfect, my gut said to start offering him some food. I am in no hurry, its more about an experiment in textures and tastes and smells than nutrition now. There is still plenty of Mama milk flowing around here...
