|It was her first time at Kroger.|
Look! She loved it.
We let them try sweet potatoes this afternoon and it was so funny how different their reactions were. Sara Kate LOVED it. She lunged forward like it was the best thing that she had ever seen.(very much like her momma!) She eventually grabbed the spoon from my hand to get it in her mouth faster. She even wiped the leftovers off Shepard's face and ate that too. No joke.
Shepard was not so excited. He just kind of stared at the spoon for a while, barely opened his mouth and then kind of let it sit there in his mouth. He was so funny. SK was angry that I was not giving it to her quick enough and he could take it or leave it.(very much like his daddy) He may take a few more tries to get him interested. He was happy about the whole ordeal, just not excited.
It was quite fun. I am going to keep up with the sweet potatoes this week. Giving them some after the 1:00 feeding and the 5:00 feeding. Next, I will try the squash. Today they split one cube at each meal time. So it was just a taste, but soon I will try to give them each one whole cube. I dumped the ice cube trays into Ziploc bags and labeled them in the freezer.This way each morning I will just get out what they will eat that day to thaw so it will be ready to eat when they are. Anybody else have any tips for this process? If so, please feel free to share. It has been awhile since I did this whole process with Clark and the whole make your own food is new to me so good ideas are welcome!
We are under a winter weather advisory tonight and I am not going to lie, I am hoping for a snow day tomorrow to get all caught up on things. But for now. I will leave you with one more cute picture from our first veggie experience.
