The baby ate food today! He didn’t want his milk and he didn’t want his water. I couldn’t figure out what was going …. so I thought that I’d try to give him a bit of the butternut squash that I made for him (Yum! Homemade first food!). Originally, I thought that I would bake it, puree it, freeze it and start him on solids in a few weeks. He had other plans.
I heard that when babies eat their first food, they eat a few spoonfuls and leave it at that. I scooped out two little scoops of sqaush thinking that he would have a few nibbles and I would eat the rest (don’t judge me! Lol). After the first bite, he was hooked. He ate almost the entire plate by himself and I didn’t get any.
I am so proud that he enjoyed it that I figured that I’d share the recipe below:
I want to mash it up and put it into ice cube trays to use for later, but life interrupted. I’ll have to do it in a bit. For now, I scooped out two hunks, put ’em on a plate, mashed ’em up and feed ’em to the baby. He ate most of it and then washed it all down with some formula. Ahhhhh … the lunch of champions! =)
