What Will Ate


Exciting things are happening in our kitchen...Will has started eating REAL FOOD! There was no doubt in my mind but it's official, this baby LOVES to eat. About a month ago, he started becoming very interested in our food. We eat dinner together as a family every night and the little guy has been paying close attention to our forks, knives and spoons as we take each bite. He has been MORE than ready to explore the delicious world he lives in.

Long before I was pregnant, I knew that making my own baby food was something I would do. My mom did it for us and I have always wanted to do the same. Not only is it easy, but there is 100% control in what goes into the food, which is important to me in feeding my little one! I'm so excited about introducing Will to new foods and flavors. 


Sophie gifted us this baby cook book (Cooking for Baby) and I just love looking through it! Her sweet boy Jack has enjoyed so many meals from this book and I can't wait to cook up all of this goodness for Will. My Beaba Babycook Pro is going to be my new favorite kitchen gadget!

I had grand plans of serving Will avocado for his first bite, but since my avocados weren't quite ripe enough, we started with sweet potatoes...and he LOVED them! Our little buddy was practically lunging towards the spoon, pulling our hands closer to him and making so many happy noises as he gobbled them up. After a few days of sweet potatoes, avocado made an appearance. We are introducing new foods every 3 days.


I'm looking forward to making many more baby meals for my sweet little eater!

  1. Look at that sweet little eater. Is his hair filling in a bunch or is it just me?

    1. Oh it's really filling in you are not imagining things! And I think it's getting lighter! I never in a million years thought I would have a baby with light hair.

  2. I so enjoyed making Lilly's food! I wish I could go back to the day where she loved to experiment and eat everything I put in front of her. Unfortunately now she has an opinion (and by that I mean she will take one look at something and tell me she doesn't like it before she even tries it!). We have the Baby Love cookbook and loved it, I will have to check yours out as well. Another great resource that I used a lot was the website wholesomebabyfood.momtastic.com - Lilly's pediatrician recommended it and it's wonderful!
