Butternut Squash

Or as her Daddy's calls it..."Butt" Squash. Obviously he is not a fan. Well, little boo boo girl was a fan! She either really liked it, or she's finally getting the hang of this eating thing. I didn't get any pictures of it, but last night we also tried out her new sippy cup with some water. She'll need a lot of practice before she can hold it herself, but she was really fascinated by it. Every time I took it away (as water dribbled down her front), she wanted it back. Like the food, she'll get the hang of it soon.
This afternoon we tried some rice cereal and sweet potatoes again. She just gobbled them up! It's fun to watch the progression of her eating "technique." During the last week...when she actually opened her mouth...she'd push her tongue out when the spoon went in. We just weren't sure how much she was actually eating. Now she's progressed to sort of sucking the food off the spoon and she opens her mouth when she sees the spoon coming towards her. So cute!
In a few days we'll try something new...maybe some fruit this time? Bananas? Possibly some avocado, if I can find some good ones?
