In addition to a great holiday, Thanksgiving 2010 was Harry's 6-month birthday. To celebrate, we offered him sweet potatoes. Mmmmm! His first taste of...well, anything besides milk. I just love the shocked and confused look babies have when they taste something new!
The day after Thanksgiving he was happily feeding himself. The sweet potatoes were home-made. Since then, he's tried applesauce and carrots...the carrots were store-bought. Whenever I buy baby food I worry a little about preservatives, pesticides, and price (3 Evil P's!), but sometimes I just don't have the time to make it myself. Maybe I should take a hint from the babies--they don't worry! Harry has just been thrilled to join us at dinnertime. He's been eye-ing our food for a long time!
