    Bananas really ripe - mushed
    Waited 1 week before bananas

    Spooned/self fed/smashed around.

    DS turned 10 month on the 18th. I think he's eaten just about everything by now! Usually every morning I give him scrambled eggs, shredded cheese, and some kind of fruit (blueberries, grapes <cut up>, bananas, pears, oranges...) FOr the most part I just put it all on his tray and let him go at it. But he is a tad bit lazy and likes to be fed sometimes too.

    Let's see, broccolli, asparagus, potato, red bell peppers. But i must admit i haven't been the best with the veggies. I really need to give him more.


    He loves meat! When he was around 6 months on the 4th of july we gave him a big hunk of steak and he just sucked on it forever! he loves salmon and tilapia. it falls apart so easily in his mouth ya know.

    Lately he's really loving food. He just stuffs his mouth full and keeps wanting more! i'm like, "swallow!!" he's such a little chipmunk haha!

    So far I've given my LO bananas, avocado and mango and he made a huge mess, especially with the avocado. He made it a puree

    We've tried:
    Banana (mashed--we're going to try pieces tomorrow )
    Avocado (HATED it, but I think it may not've been ripe enough? I'm not sure. But it looked like coleslaw after I'd mashed it up... )
    Chicken and beef (pureed--also hated it)
    Green beans (pureed--likes it)
    Peas (pureed--likes it)
    Sweet potatoes (mashed and pureed--loves it)
    Butternut squash (pureed--loves it)
    Pears (pureed--loves it)
    Gerber Puffs--loves them!

    I think that's it so far I want to try avocado again, but I was under the impression that I could mash it like a banana, but it was hard to mash and ended up chunky. Oh well.

    D had a ball with the avacado last night. I don't think he ate much but he sure had fun smearing it all over himself.
