Atlas Eats Real Food
Guess who is coming off their all-liquid diet?
So far, he loves sweet potatoes and pears. He sort of loves butternut squash. Oatmeal is edible, but not his favorite and judging by his facial expressions apples and bananas are apparently from the Devil. I’m making the majority of his baby food myself so I know exactly what he’s getting. I’m convinced he would like the apples more if I drizzled caramel into them and the bananas would be a bigger hit if I mixed some peanut butter in…but that doesn’t come recommended by the pediatrician. 😉
Feeding a 4 month old with a spoon is a messy job. I found sweet potato remnants behind his ear during bath time the other night. Behind his ear. How does that even happen? I’ll admit his table manners could use some work.
There’s currently a big debate going on in our house over who gets to clean Atlas off after meal time. Ob thinks she should get dibs over Marley because she is the one who guards Atlas while he sleeps.
Things are crazy busy (& messy – seriously, sweet potato behind the ear) right now in our house. Lots of exciting things going on though, which I plan on sharing with you soon. I’ve partnered with a great company to help bring more fruits and veggies to people around the world & I begin training with an Olympic athlete next month to improve my running. But tonight, my ‘mom hat’ is on so the fact that my baby boy is growing and eating new foods trumped all that exciting stuff. 🙂 I just can’t believe how fast he is growing…watching a little human grow is pretty darn spectacular.
*Edited to add: I still nurse Atlas for all his meals, but he gets a ‘snack’ once or twice a day in an effort to let him try new foods. Breastmilk is still is main source of nutrition at 4 months though.
