Adventures in Weaning #2

Broccoli, broccoli, broccoli EVERYWHERE….


She LOVES broccoli


She loves to mush it up in her wee hands


Some of it even went in her mouth.

NB:  To clean up this amount of broccoli mess, you must first use kitchen towel to remove as much of the mush as you can, then wipe round with some kind of jaycloth type affair, then give it another wipe over with a cleaning wipe, then brush it up off the floor, then use a cloth to remove the mush from your brush, then another cloth etc etc etc.  Broccoli is bloody hard to clean up.  I nearly got the hoover out, and that is not something I do on a regular basis.

Adventures in weaning #1

So the baby is eating solids now.

We’ve done the whole baby rice, pureed apple, pureed pear, pureed vegetables thing, and now shit’s getting real.  And messy…


This is some lentils I lovingly cooked down with some carrots to sweeten them up.  Pureed to a smooth(ish) consistency.  Doesn’t it look yummy?


The lentils did not go down too well…
