Operation Peas: Success!




We just introduced peas into her diet — puree’d by yours truly. I am so proud of myself for making her first foods and not buying baby food. I know it’s not that big of a deal, but knowing myself and how sometimes I like to just go with the easy way out, I am really patting myself on the back. It would’ve been easier to just go to the store and buy organic baby food, but I wanted to do this myself and I wanted to know that I can make my baby her own food, by myself, with all the ingredients and pureness that only a mother can be so careful about. So there we go. I puree’d peas for the first time, and darn it, it was easy as pie, just as everyone had told me it would be. I was worried over nothing!

While Lily Bean didn’t really like rice cereal (and still don’t — I would just say she actually just tolerates it and eats it to humor me), once we put peas into her rice cereal, she chomped it all up! And today, we decided to try the peas just on its own for lunch, and she ate it all up too! She was much happier — even giggling and smiling! I like that. I want meal times to be fun and wonderful, not trying and unhappy — so far so good!

Yeah for making your own food! I give you props for doing so!
I love that smile when she got to eat them.
