I really like to make babyfood. I think the commercial jars are quite the rip-off and ever since reading Super Baby Food when Charlie was a baby, I've been taken with the idea of making it myself. So I decided to dig into the fresh fruits and veggies that came in my box from the farm. I found a great website on making homemade baby food that recommends pumpkin, among other things. So I baked that pie pumpkin I got in my box, scooped out the flesh, pureed it with water and a little cinnamon and boy-oh-boy, it was a HIT with Elliot. He gobbled it up like he hadn't eaten in years. And now when he eagerly takes his first bite of dinner, he's visibly disappointed when he finds out its peas and carrots mixed in with his YoBaby instead of pumpkin.

Homemade, all-natural, organic, cheap: what's not to love about pumpkin baby food made right at home?! Here's the proof.

Menu Planning Tuesdays? I'm way too tired. Just got back from a quick trip to Augusta to meet a friend's new baby and got ZERO sleep last night. Had to sleep in a bed with Charlie, in the same room with Elliot. Charlie has never slept in a big-boy bed before and has never slept with me. Recipe for disaster. We were up from 1:30am-4:30am (no exaggeration): "Hi Mommy" / "Pet my head Mommy" / "I love you Mommy" / "I go downstairs Mommy." Cute, but not at 4am.

PS - We are not fans of eggplant...

LOL!!! I can just hear Charlie talking to you at 2:00AM. Good for you for making your own food. You have more patience than I do :)
