mari, meet sweet potatoes. sweet potatoes, meet mari.

Big things are brewing over at our house; Mari's eating solids! We started with rice cereal, progressed to oat cereal, and now we're onto veggies. This is a whole new world, and it's full of experimentation, adjustment, flexibility (on Mari's part, really - we have no idea what we're doing)... and a lot of dirty diapers.
I'm especially grateful for Jen over at The Haystack Needle; this post was perfectly timed for our solids experience. It was the guidance - and confidence boost - I needed to get started.

We got the book and the food mill (which might be my most favorite kitchen gadget), thanks to my dear friend Michelle, and we're off and running. Or smearing. Depending on what ends up in the mouth and what ends up elsewhere.

Sweet potatoes get about 3.5 stars out of 5. Fun factor = 10. This week, we're into green peas. So far, so yummy.

More to come on making Mari's baby food!

Darling! At least you know what she's eating, unlike the days of our limited selection of jarred baby food. These babies are very entertaining, right?
