These past few weeks have been great with Baby Joe. He has made some major developmental milestones, and also we are getting in to the swing of solid foods. I decided after much thought to go ahead and make my own baby food. A good friend of mine is a working mom and she does it and convinced me it won't take too much time. Well, after I bought the Beaba Babycook, I realized she was right. Beaba Babycook
All I do is spend about an hour (if it's meats, because you have to precook) or less (if its veggies because it will steam and cook them for you) on Sunday and I have my food. I also bought some GREAT trays to store the foods in and they just freeze overnight and pop out.
I then put them in a freezer bag and date and I have his food for a month (meats) and 3months (veggies). So far I have made turkey, chicken, sweet potatoes, and peas. My next item will be butternut squash and maybe green beans. He REALLY likes his foods. The only thing I am struggling with is a schedule. I do have his 6 month visit coming up so I am going to make sure what I am doing is ok. As my doctor said at our 4 months, "Gen, you can't screw this up." I figure I am doing ok and will ask at the next visit.
Developmental Milestones- My big guys is having a blast rolling over. I think his favorite game is "Let's Roll Over". For directions, just look at the title of the game and BINGO, you can play! I am also so excited to report that yesterday I had Joe on the floor sitting up between my legs and he sat up and reached for toys unassisted!!!!! I literally started scooting back and he was SITTING UP!!!!! WOOOHOOO!!! I have to admit I was terrified I was going to miss that one by being at work.....now if we can get through him walking at home and not while I am at work, I will be set! Looking forward to 6 months!!! We are also getting our first professional family portraits done in October. I am really excited. Meanwhile, enjoy these pics taken by Grandpa Mike. Not bad!!!
