homemade baby food adventure #1: banana avocado

We woke up this morning to rain and yucky weather, so I figured it would be a perfect day to try making baby food.



Sage woke up happy as a little clam so I knew that he would be open to trying something new! I found this website of what foods to introduce at different ages and how. Thank you, pinterest! I had errands to run in the morning anyway so while we were out I picked up a ripe avocado. We had bananas on hand already so I decided that would be a perfect mix! Neither bananas or avocados need to be cooked before they are made into baby food, and since we're both new to homemade baby food I decided the easier the better!



I mashed the avocado and the banana together using a fork, but it was still too clumpy...



so I put them into the blender until they were the perfect consistency.



Look how much better it looks than the nasty baby food in a jar (which is supposed to be squash but looks..and smells..nothing like squash) haha



Okay! Moment of truth! I put Sage in his chair, slapped a bib on him, and hoped for the best!



Sizing it up...



Thinking...



He likes it! YAY!!



He couldn't get enough! He loved it!



He was a happy and full baby! Our first baby food adventure was a huge success. I can't wait to try more baby foods on my little taste tester!xo
