First Food

I've got lots of catching up to do - Hudson has been keeping me busy lately and not napping well so I haven't had much time to blog lately, but hope to get caught up sometime in the next week or two.  

We started Hudson on solid foods at about 5 1/2 months.  We started with avocados and it was love at first bite!!  Brian's Grandparents stopped at our house on their way back to Indiana from Florida and we thought it would be fun if they got to watch him eat.  I think they really enjoyed getting to see all of Hudson's expressions.  
First bite was a shock, but a smile quickly showed up on his face.  

Loved the green stuff!
Brian's sweet Grandma gave Hudson his bottle - this was before he ate
Unfortunately they didn't stay long and we had to say goodbye - I love this picture with the 5 of them

Afterwards - a nice, happy baby!
We have since given Hudson sweet potatoes, bananas, and he just tried carrots today for the first time.  It took a few times for him to get used to the texture and taste of sweet potatoes, but now he really likes them. He loves bananas.  Carrots are okay so far.  He's such a good little eater.  I have made all of the baby food so far.  I feel really good giving him fresh, homemade food instead of store bought baby food.  Plus, it's been  a lot easier than I expected to prepare everything.  


  1. Wow ... such a big boy. I also give my son homemade foods. Such great memories with extended family.

  2. How cute! Bryar loves avacados too!


Thanks for leaving me a message! Many Blessings!
