Davy's gone Bananas

So I think I will count this as Davy's first time eating. I wanted to counteract the snack packs and dum dums with organic bananas, pureed fresh. Davy has been doing better then expected with her food. It's all about quality and not quantity with her. The one bummer about solids is when she throws it up. Goo, I am predicting a lot of stained clothes in our future.


As you can see Davy happily accepts her bananas.
We feed her using a J. We press the spoon on her tongue and then lift up(like a J.)



She is still a little weirded out. Not quite sure what to do with it. I am sure vanilla pudding was
more tasty.

Wait.....wait. What's this? I think she likes it.


Yep, she likes it!

Now she just needs to stop smiling and swallow it.

There she goes. This is how Davy swallows. Like a little birdie. Mouth open, tongue out. Gulp gulp gulp.
Next up carrots and sweet potatoes.

Oh my gosh....she is so stinking cute. And that beautiful head of hair she has....gorgeous. She makes me smile! Glad to hear that the solid foods are slowly, but surely, working out.

Fantastic photos. I smiled more every time I scrolled down to the next shot. That little girl of yours sure smiles with her eyes.

I am in love with her! The last picture of her smiling and the one of her swallowing killed me! I seriously laughed out in joy (I sound like a cheeseball, I do realize this.), and I am so SUPER jealous of her thick hair! My girls are so bald and fine haired, she's such a beauty!

I loved this post...made me smile from ear to ear! Feeding is no fun, but she seems to think it's pretty cool. XOXO
PS the newborn pic of Davy on the post below is absolutely adorable. She had such a sweet, round, chubby face.
