Another solids update

Cameron is doing awesome with solids!! It was a slow start but she has really taken to it now. The past 4 or 5 days she has eaten a full 2 ounces! She would have eaten more but we ran out of what I had thawed for her. So far she loves sweet peas, sweet potatoes, pears, and apples. I think apples are her favorite, she would kind of squeal in between bites like "come on mom, you aren't spooning this stuff into my mouth fast enough!" I'm still making all of her baby food myself and it is super fun. I did make her some avocado and that did not sit well with her. All of the other foods I've given her she has either liked or just spit out. Not the avocado. The second the food hit her tongue she started gagging so hard and ended up throwing up. I was so surprised by that reaction, I thought it must be a fluke since babies can have some gagging issues when they are first learning how to eat solids. I tried a second bite and the exact same thing happened, as soon as she tasted the avocado she gagged until she threw up. So no avocado for Cameron. Let me tell you, this girl knows what she wants and what she doesn't want. She has had a very strong will from the beginning and it's only getting stronger ;) I introduced another new thing to her, a mesh teether/feeder. It is a mesh sack that you can put whole fruit in and let the baby suck on. Cameron loves it!!! Of course I had to take a photo shoot of her first experience. So far I have only put pears in it and boy does she love to suck all the juice out! Here is her and her mesh feeder!
