Re: Solids and BLS.... getting frustrated
The goal with BLS is to let them eat at their own pace. It sounds like your daughters pace is just kind of slower than you expected. I don't think it's anything you need to worry about and I don't think you should feel like you absolutely HAVE to make up for it with purees. As long as you're still nursing plenty she's getting what she needs and that won't suddenly change when she has her first birthday. It's a slow, gradual transition to relying on solids for the majority of their nutrition and different kids will go at different rates.
One thing you might want to do is try some new foods and new flavors. When my daughter was that age she LOVED pasta, shredded chicken with taco seasoning (make your own or use low-sodium), black beans and rice, strips of buttered toast, finger foods like cheerios or chex, berries of any kind.
