Obsessed

Obsessed is an understatement, because what goes into my child's mouth/tummy is on my mind ALL THE TIME! The last couple of weeks I've been obsessed with making my own baby food. The above picture is hardly 1/5 of what I have stored in my freezer right now. After I was done and all the cubes were ziplocked away I stood back and looked at what I had done--I seriously think I was beaming--I was so proud of myself. It's too funny what makes me proud these days. I've also made apples, plums, carrots, blueberries, melon, cauliflower, and broccoli (of which the last four he can't even eat until he's 8 months old). Miles' fave is apples and butternut squash mixed together and his least favorite is (no surprise here) peas. However, he still eats the peas, but vocalizes his dislike while he swallows--it's pretty darn funny.

Look at you!!! That is so awesome that you did all of that! Jenson hated peas too! That was definitely his least favorite!

Wow! I'm so impressed. That is one thing I definetly never would have been obsessed with but then I don't even cook for myself. Logan only hated green beans but loved peas.

That is so awesome. I have to admit that I never did make my own baby food. Do you follow a book or just do your own thing? I am truely impressed. I miss you, we need to get together. Did you go to our school reunion?

I am impressed. Looks like you will be set for a while. And how great to know that Miles is eating good food. I can't wait til you can give me all your pointers on this...in just a few months.
Thanks for the recipes.

Holy cow! Go girl! But honestly not I'm not that surprised you always achieve great things! Now when are you coming to make me meals for the next five months?

Are you kidding me? Do you know that there's this amazing company that's been around forever called Gerber?? They do the work for us and the food is healthy and great! I'm impressed but a little concerned that you have that much time on your hands :-)
