This post is going to be all baby so you have been warned!
Look who hit seven months yesterday! I love this age/stage that we’re in so much. Finn is so expressive and full of personality, babbling up a storm, playing a lot but not yet moving. I know that life is going to change significantly once he’s really mobile but I’m ready for it!
In the ongoing story of introducing solids, Finn’s favorite food is definitely bread/toast…haha. I can’t blame him. He loves for me to put toast strips on his tray and they go straight in his mouth. I’ve been putting butter or coconut oil on it, or serving it plain. I’ve done wheat bread, pita bread and this was my homemade sourdough. He loves it all. He doesn’t actually eat a lot of it but really enjoys gumming it.
This child is smart. If I try to give him something like a blueberry or a piece of banana, he clamps his mouth shut and turns his head. If I’m holding him and eating a cookie or a Reese’s, he grabs my hand and tries to put it in his mouth. (Obviously, I’m not letting him have it!)
I’ve received so many questions about what approach I’m taking. I’m not following any one approach…just kind of winging it and not pushing it…a mix of baby led weaning and I’ve tried purees. I just find baby led weaning to be so easy because I can give him little bits of what I’m eating.
I received so many recommendations to follow Feeding Littles on Instagram. It’s a great resource and I actually just bought their online course for baby led weaning. It was on sale today $15 off (using code 100KYAY) and I thought it would be a helpful resource and give me some good info, tips and ideas. I’ll be sure to circle back with a review.
I took Finn to see Santa yesterday!
We have the most legit Santa at our local mall. Finn was great with Santa and when I went to take him after the photo, Santa told me he was keeping Finn. He whispered to Finn that they could ride his Harley together and go fishing in his boat. Haha…some kind of sled, huh?
I’m going to keep it short and sweet today! Sending lots of love to all of you.
Tell me about your child’s first Santa visit? Go well or meltdown? Best Santa stories?
