I’ve been making baby food like it’s going out of style.

So far – Acorn Squash, Sweet Potatoes, Parsnips, Bananas, Apples, Prunes, and Apple-Cranberry.  I ran out of freezer space so today I went downtown and found a wire rack so I can stack things better.  Thank goodness, because I found a nice bunch of broccoli that has James’s name on it!  He’s only had veggies so far, except for the prunes, but they were an emergency!

He’s loved nearly everything.  He tried avocados, but just wouldn’t eat them, and the peas were not a hit at all.  They were the canned kind, though, and would you eat them?  I wouldn’t!  He got so fed up with them that he actually screamed, ripped at his bib, and wriggled his shoulders to get them out of the high chair straps.  It was the funniest thing, he’s really beginning to show us some attitude!

I adore watching his little personality develop, and yet, I couldn’t really describe what that personality is.  He’s happy most of the time, he loves to play and be tickled, but he’s also serious when there’s a new thing to get into or examine.  He’s just starting to be nervous around people he doesn’t really know, and sometimes cries when I leave the room – even if he’s playing with someone else!  I shouldn’t like that, but I do!  I love being loved by this sweet little creature!
