7 Months Old!

Owen is doing well.  Feeling much better and trying to stay away from any illnesses being passed around day care.  He is a lot of fun right now.  We have had a few more snow days recently so I have been able to hang out with him some more :) We started eating foods at exactly 6 months and took a break during the hospital stay, because he didn't want to eat anything at all.  Owen has come a long way with his technique.  The first 2 weeks almost everything came back out.  He has made some awesome faces too!  None caught on camera though :( I am still making his food, which really isn't too bad when you have the hand blender to quickly puree things.  So far I am not a fan of the hand crank food mill... the hand blender is the way to go.

Things he has tried so far: (not that any of you are interested, but it serves as a record for me.)
Cereals: 1. Organic Brown Rice 2. Oatmeal 3. Barley
Veggies: 1. Sweet Potatoes 2. Carrots 3. Butternut Squash 4. Green Beans 5. Peas
Fruits: 1. Bananas 2. Apples 3. Pears
