Mmmm....bananas, apples, and sweet potatoes & I am 6 months old!!!

I have had Molly on solids sporadically for the last week and a half. I have been giving her rice cereal with a little bit of other foods mixed in at least once a day, if not twice a day. I had briefly tried banana with her before, and a little apple. Because you are suppose to span at least 3 days between new foods...I tried wax beans, then sweet potatoes, and offcially banana today. So far no signs of allergies. She prefers the food not mixed with the cereal. So, I tried last night, and today the foods by themselves, and she loves them.
Greg, and I have talked about making her own food all along. I have even been to a seminar on making your own versus jarred stuff. I have tried the jarred stuff out of convenience at the time. Today I made bananas for her in the blender. Two large bananas, and a 1/2 cup or a little more of water made a whole ice cube tray full.
It took less than 3 minutes! I think in the long run it will be much healthier, and cheaper to make our own food. It really doesn't take long. The nutritionist that did the seminar, says you can take one hour a week, and have a whole week's suppy or more of baby food to store in the freezer.

Molly is cutting her first tooth...

Poor little girl was just fine this morning. We packed up and headed over to a friend's house for a gathering. Greg went on and walked over with Molly because she needed some fresh air. I was just getting in the car to go over, and I get a call. Apparently she started to cry before they got to our friend's house. I get there, and she is just freaking right out, and it continued. Nothing would console her. So we gave her some tylenol, and packed her up to bring her home. She cried so much she went to sleep, and she seemed better. Then she got fussy again. I felt around in her mouth, and I can feel the tooth beneath the surface.

Molly's new gadget...

I picked up this used exersaucer for Molly yesterday. It was on craigslist for $25. It had been sitting in a carport, and was very dirty, and moldy. I came home and gave it a good scrubbing, and disinfecting. The seat has a little bit of stain from the mold, but you can't really see it , unless you are up close. It is a shame they let it go like that. If I had known that it needed that much cleaning, I would have made them go down on the price. The picture they advertised was a little misleading. Anyhow, I just went on, and took it. Molly needed something with more gadgets. :)

Mmmmmm, wax beans! :)

Molly tried a little bit of wax beans I had in a jar that was given to us. She ate it better than the rice cereal. It was funny, after about 5 or 6 little spoonfuls, she made this horrid face. You would think that would come with the first bite. She is so silly. I intend on making most of her food, but will have some jarred stuff on occasion. We just happen to have this lying around, and thought ok, we will try it.
What will be next??? :)
