Baby Food Part II

Sorry it's been a bit since I've blogged! I guess you can't blame me, though. I do have a seven month old:)

This is one of those weird days where I actually woke up before Bug. I woke up a lot this past night, I'm not really sure what's going on with me. He's still asleep--he's been down since about six thirty last night. I highly suspect this is because the previous night, he kept me awake from 11:30 pm until 5:30 am the next day. Yup.

Which isn't to say he's not a good sleeper, because normally he is. But sometimes we get these weird random days...

Anyway! Baby food!

I use the Beaba Babycook to make Bug's food, which is super easy because I just chop up the unsuspecting fruit or vegetable, let it steam it, and then I puree it IN THE SAME MACHINE and then I store it. It's ridiculous.

The only downside to my Babycook is it sometimes doesn't make a whole lot at once. Like, I can usually get seven portions of carrots out of it, but if I make something that has a lot more water (like, say, the acorn squash I made yesterday), I only get three portions. So sometimes I feel like I did a whole lot of work for not a lot of effort. But on the other hand, if I make a small amount of something and he doesn't like it, then at least I wasn't wasteful:)

Unfortunately, thanks to the formula recall, I had to pitch a bunch of my homemade baby food due to the fact that I usually thin it out with formula. I was pretty annoyed about that, let me tell you. But this weekend I made him carrots, and acorn and butternut squash. I also have some sweet potatoes to make.

Bug is a pretty good eater. Thus far, he's tried green beans, peas, sweet potatoes, squash, pumpkin, pears, apples, bananas peaches, and carrots. The only thing he's balked at (to my surprise!) have been the peaches.

Speaking of my beautiful boy, he's making noise so I guess we should begin our day:)
