loving some sweet potatoes

this past saturday was quite the special day for this little man.
after months and months of nothing but breast milk (some seriously tasty breast milk) made especially for him by yours truly, he tried his first solid food.
the pediatrician said to start him on rice cereal (blah, blah, blah...he may just fire me from his practice someday for never listening), but as you can see sweet potatoes were on the menu instead.
i scrubbed one up, poked holes in it with a fork, put it in the oven at 400 degrees for about 60 minutes, scooped out the insides when cooled, added some breast milk to thin it out, put it in our mini cuisinart (found here), and voila!

auntie bridget was visiting for the weekend, so she snapped about 100 pictures of the event.  thought about posting all of them for you 9 followers...but i figured that was overkill.

be warned new moms: changing quinn's diaper was quite interesting the next day.  what went in looked exactly the same coming out.

quinn has since had sweet potatoes three more times and just loves them.  we put him in the highchair and he flaps his arms wildly in anticipation.  mike digs sweet potatoes too...he even polished off quinn's leftovers, breast milk and all.  yummmmmm.
