Tommy had his 6 month checkup today, which was fortunate since he is sick at the moment. The most amazing thing we found out was that he is in the top 75% for weight (19 lbs.) and the top 97% for height (29 inches). The doctor said he was one of the tallest he had seen for a baby his age. He is his father's son. :)
Now that Tommy has been consistently eating solids, I have started making his food. I thought it would be a lot harder than it is, and it's actually quite fun. I have a book, Blender Baby Food, that gives really simple recipes and great tips on baby/toddler nutrition, meal plans, and preparation. Here's what Tommy has tasted so far:
- green beans
- sweet potato
Over the next few weeks we'll try blueberries, spinach, and avocado. Yum!
