The first few months of your baby’s life fly by, most often in a haze of sleep deprivation, learning curves and adventure. It’s actually crazy when you get to the food stage, because suddenly your little one is on their way to getting so much bigger and more independent.
It’s so much fun to see their first facial expressions, as they taste the first bites of food introduced to them. Will they lick their lips in anticipation for more, or close their lips up firmly not allowing another thing in there?
Sometimes, we have to be a little more creative in how we present some foods. I always found meat a challenging one to offer up (especially because I never thought it seemed very appealing either.) Fruits were always so fun to make and give babies because usually they just couldn’t get enough.
