Well it is official... Our sweet boy has had something other than momma's milk.
After much deliberation we made the executive decision to give Crew his first taste of food a little earlier than we expected. This was extremely hard on me for a few reasons. The first being that now he doesn't solely need me anymore (I had the same emotions with Charli), second being that he was only 5 months old. We gave Charli her First Food a couple days before she turned 6 months, so giving Crew his food even earlier had me going nuts! But lastly because it is something we needed to do because of some medical/health issues going on with me (I will update on all of that soon, I promise). So coming to terms with the fact that this was something we had to do was very hard for me.
So on the evening of January 22nd, after saying the blessing, we sat around the dinner table together as a family and let daddy give Crew his first bite of pureed green beans!
We will be making Crew's food just as we did for Charli but we are also more relaxed this go around and are fine with him eating certain organic baby foods as long as the ingredients are just the pureed veggie or fruit. The only concern for us is food allergies due to my Celiac Disease so we will keep a very close eye on him as well.
He has since had green peas and is currently on sweet potatoes. Our little man seems to love it all!
I still can't believe he is old enough to be eating...
