In Madeleine related news, yesterday we introduced her to solids and she absolutely loved it! I'll be honest, I was half hoping that she would get a taste of pears and not like the texture or the taste and I'd have to continue exclusively breastfeeding her for a while longer (I love that breastfeeding her is something that no one else can do for her but me and she clearly prefers me to a bottle), but she absolutely loved it! Maddie was so excited every time the spoon would come closer to her mouth, recharged with more yummy pears! I plan on making all of Maddie's baby food myself but her first solid food was not homemade, I used Sprouts organic grilled pears for her first solid (mostly because the selection of organic fruits at my grocery store is shockingly limited), but from here on out I'll be using my Vitamix blender to make her food (I just need to find a good source for organic produce, I think I'll try shopping at Whole Foods later today.)
Mike giving Maddie one of her first bites of solid food, yummy!
With leaving the corporate world I'm entering a world of full-time Mommyhood, and I'm excited about it! Part of that excitement is because I'll finally have the free time to return to blogging regularly and be able to partake in fun activities with my daughter.
