Sweet Potatoes

Aoife had her first taste of the hard stuff today! I went with sweet potatoes - I roasted one up for her this afternoon and she ate with us at the dinner table. As you can see, she liked it - a lot! She's been showing interest in our food for a little while now and I was trying to wait until we got back from our trip back to Massachusetts in 2 weeks. I just didn't want to have to deal with baby food and traveling. But she's been waking up in the night for 3 nights now and it's hard to tell if her tooth was waking her up or if she was hungry. So I figured that since she was almost 6 months it was OK to start her on solids. I guess we'll see if it helps - not that she really got much of it down - I think the majority went on her face and hands!!

YUM! She is a good little eater! Noelle is very picky about which pureed foods she will eat - she much prefers finger foods already.
