A Solid Effort

I haven't posted much about our introduction to solids because there wasn't much to post. It kind of came to standstill when The Chub Muffin wouldn't even open her mouth to taste anything. She would just sit there with her lips zipped tightly together, so unless we wanted to use a shoe horn, there was nothing that was going to penetrate that gummy barrier. Because of this, we took it as a sign that she wasn't quite ready for it yet and we'd just stick to the bottle for now. However, lately the little Chubadub has been eating poorly from the bottle as well which got us concerned and sent us to the pediatrician to figure out what to do next. He suggested trying some of the yellow squashes first since babies tend to like these most and maybe if she got even just a taste of it, she'd start opening her mouth for the spoon.

Tonight we tried some sweet potatoes with the Senorita and we made progress. She actually opened her mouth a couple of times and smiled, which we're taking as an indication that she likes it. It was a mess, especially when she sneezed sweet potato all over me, but we're making progress.


  1. She is just so cute. I wish I could kiss her and hug her right now.

  2. what a cutie! camden loves sweet potatoes too. bananas, sweet potatoes, and apples are his favorite. i'm curious to hear what else she'll like.
