On eating solids for the first time:
Daniel’s time: Book said baby can start eating real food at 6 months. Dean and I were so excited we went shopping for organic vegetables at 5 months. Took picture of every step of the way. Wanted to make something fancier for him but book said one food at a time, don’t mix food together since their stomach isn’t used to food yet. So avocado only. Sent pictures to everyone we know.
Mariam’s time: It’s almost 7 months. Dean and I are busy with attention-demanding Daniel that we have said things like “Mariam doesn’t look that hungry yet” and “We’ll feed her next week.” Poor Mariam having such lazy parents and a diva brother.
My future consecutive babies: Will probably get fed solids when they ask for it. “Mommy, can I please have some mashed spinach, all the other kids at school are asking why I only drink milk.” I would hate to be my future consecutive babies.
This bad parenting has got to stop haha. So today, Dean and I started Mariam on solids and felt so proud! Bought some organic carrots and steamed them with potatoes (totally ignoring the book, what does it know anyway..).
She loved it!
Gotta think of a menu for her everyday now. This eating solids thing is a lifetime commitment, once you start you can’t go back. Hehehe. Tomorrow is Broccoli Day for Mariam. I’m going to make this baby love vegetables! #pleasedontbelikemommy
