Harper Eats!

I was so excited to hear from the doctor at Harper's six month check-up that we could start feeding him real food. I had wondered if we'd have to wait until he was six months per his "adjusted" age - but hooray - we didn't have to. 

We decided to start our little buddy of on peas (Andy was pretty insistent that we not start him off on anything too tasty - we're determined to have at least one child who isn't picky about food!). Turns out - Harper finds peas to be pretty tasty - or maybe it was just the joy of eating something other than milk for  change. Regardless, he was all smiles and you could tell he was just relishing in the fact that he was doing such a big boy task! 

Over the following weeks we tested him out on the following and it was thumbs up all around: green beans, bananas, apples, pears, peaches, carrots, & squash. So far so good on the picky eater front - phew!
