Baby food

I've been making Cordie's baby food. Half my freezer is now full of things like ice cube sized pureed carrots, peas, broccoli, sweet potato, avocado, banana, cauliflower...

What's funny is I never made baby food for Duncan. I found the idea of making my own food totally overwhelming. Heck, with Duncan I could barely get dinner on the table half the time. Mind you with Duncan I think ever day I was out doing something baby-ish with him - story time, Shop N Stroll, Mom talk, swimming, coffee with Andrea... We'd get home, I'd nurse him to sleep, and I'd opt to have him nap on my lap, and next thing I knew the day was done.

How different it is with the second one. Even with Duncan gone to daycare two days a week, I've only managed to get to story time twice - which is sad b/c I have Monday's for that reason. But we're now always getting stuff done around the house, running errands, doing this and that. And not that much socializing. Very little napping on my lap.

It's just funny. I find it easier to get dinner ready on time (although it still feels like the house is never clean). My days fill up and they fly by. And I make my own baby food.

Why did I find it so hard before? It's so simple. And so cheap. I also find I'm just letting her try random solids more - like a piece of bread, apple, noodles, etc...

I just need to say my life is so full and so blessed. Although Bill is off for his eye (which sucks b/c he severely limits what he can do - he can't read, can't use his computer, light bothers is really badly, it gives him headaches... ) it's super wonderful having him home.

But that's not about baby food.

having Bill home is baby food: food for a happy baby's soul. Happy moms are important!

I am very interested in making my own baby food, when the time comes. Thanks for posting.
