This is just a little taste of what it's like while feeding Jonah & Jake. It's a lot of fun but also a lot of messes. They are testing the waters a lot these days by spitting and rubbing the food all over their faces. Jonah is very interested in holding his own spoon sometimes. Jake is not very good at opening his mouth wide enough to get much food in so he usually takes a lot longer to eat than his bro.
They just started to eat some protein, just chicken and turkey as of right now. They definately liked it! Their favorites are sweet potatoes, bananas, apple sauce, peas, carrots and a few others they've tried. I dont think they are too wild about green beans or spinach but we'll work on that. They definately let me know when something is not good. Jonah looks at me like "WHY would you give this to me" and Jake makes the funniest gagging sound. He's not actually gagging, it's just a noise to protest my choice of veggie.
I do make my own baby foods as well as give them some store bought. BUT, everything is organic...even their juice. That's important to me to try to reduce the amount of chemicals/artificials that go into their mouths right now. I'm sure they'll have plenty of time to load up on unhealthy things when they are adults but I want to start them out on the right foot.
