    Default I may only be 6.5 months old... but I can feed myself!

    When Christopher was about 6 months, I tried to introduce solids using the baby led approach. But when he wasn't taking anything in at all, I decided to puree some homemade fruits & veggies and fed them to him, while occassionally leaving a bunch on his high chair in case he felt the urge to feed himself.

    So a couple weeks ago he decided to dig in to his carrots & squash...


    He was having a grand old time...


    So I decided to try and leave some food out not pureed, and he took it right up! Thought I'd share.

    We have the same highchair! It's a good thing the cover is washable... If you don't know what I mean now I promise you will soon!

    Seriously, though- those are some cute pics!
