"I can see how peas are Mama's favorite vegetable."

"But I think they could use a little something extra."

"Maybe a giraffe."

"Yes, a giraffe adds that nice extra touch."

"A certain je nais se quoi quality, really."

"It makes sense, you know. 
Sophie the Giraffe was made in France. The French know food."

"Bon appetit!"

"The doctor told me that I should try yogurt now, 
especially since I'm taking antibiotics for a pesky ear infection."

"Here it comes!"


"Hm, kinda tart. But I think I like it."

"I should keep trying it to be sure."

"Yeah, I'd say yogurt is pretty yummy! (As long as it's mixed with apples and oatmeal, anyway.)"

"What do you mean there's no more? Magic Spoon! Do your job!"

Diego's rating: 3.5 stars
(FYI: Stonyfield organic whole milk plain yogurt)

"Gina, Mama told me that you used to laugh at her for eating peas and carrots together. 
I have something to show you."



"I don't get what was so funny. That was delicious!"

Puff piece

"Do I have something on my face?"

"I can't quite see it."

"I'm pretty sure there's something there."

"Why, hello puff!"

"Fancy meeting you here!"

"I'm going to try to get this puff into my mouth. This could take awhile, so talk amongst yourselves."

"I think I have it!  I think it's in my mouth!"

"Does this count as feeding myself?"

"That was really hard, you guys. I think I might be ready for a nap now. 
But how about a puff for the road?"

Diego's rating: 1 thumb up!
(FYI: Happy Baby Organic Puffs, Apple flavor)

Fun with Grandma

"Hi again! Grandma and I did lots of things together last week."

"We watched the cars go by. I like how they go 'vroom!'"

"And of course I ate."

"I ate a lot."

"I hope there's more after this bowl of squash. 
Maybe some more of those delicious New Jersey peaches you brought me?"

"And then before I knew it, it was time to say goodbye."

"Don't go! Take me with you, Grandpa, Giver of Apple Slices!"

Something New Everyday!

"Hi you guys. Can I show you what Grandpa gave me? It's pretty amazing!"

"Look! An apple slice!"

"I'm not quite sure what to do with it, though."

"Lick it, maybe?"

"Grandpa, I licked it. But now what?"

"Oh, I know."

"Now YOU lick it!"

Acorn Squash

"Is it smushy? Can I pet it?"

"Just a little closer..."


"Oh, I see. Yes, in my mouth is better.  5 stars, Mama. Definitely 5 stars."

First finger food: avocado

"It's been how long since I posted?"

"Oh my. Well, I have a good reason."

"This is how I spent a lot of last week. 
I had another bad fever and needed to snuggle with Mama and Daddy."

"I'm all better now! And Mama said that I get to show you what I tried for the first time!"

 "She said it's called 'finger food.' But I don't think I'm ready for meat yet."

"I am enjoying the smushy texture quite a bit."

"It makes for good snacking while watching the cars go by, too."

"Brava, Mama!  Good choice!"
