Eating Food

I talked a big game about “baby-led weaning”: skipping purees, skipping spoons, skipping baby cereal, waiting until Della could put steamed sticks of grown-up food in her mouth by herself. So on Sunday we gave her some grab-able sticks of soft sweet potato. Of course, she gagged (perfectly normal! say the baby-led weaning sites), and the next day I bought four spoons and a box of Gerber oatmeal. Here she is eating the milkiest spoonful of oatmeal ever to be called oatmeal. But she liked it!
