Here in the Turtle house we are practicing baby led solids, what a fun adventure it's been!  TJ's first food was sweet potatoes and that first night he did a lot of playing.  He's always been a big observer, and once I handed him a spoon and he accidentally got some sweet potato in his mouth he was sold!

Here are some of our adventures:
Turtle Dad giving the first bit of ice cream

Second bite of ice cream

Apple flavored teething item

Zucchini Fries: zucchini dipped in Breast Milk, dredge in baby cereal with a little garlic powder, bake at 375 until golden and cool before serving

nom nom nom...

Zucchini carnage

Zuccini pancakes: 1 cup zucchini, 2 tbsp enriched rice flour, 2 tbsp oat flour, 2 tbsp applesauce, garlic powder and a pinch of salt; saute in a dash of olive oil Wheat free, egg free, dairy free
mmm pancakes...


sweet potato pancakes- sweet potato in place of zucchini

Soon to be best friends, TJ will bribe turtle dog with food...

What a loooonnnggg time it's been!  I'm ready to start jotting my e-thoughts down again as I have recently found the need to create pins for my kitchen creations, crafty endeavors and mommy experiments.  Since I can't always find what I'm looking for online, I decided I'd just put it here myself!

Some updates:
