What Mason Ate Today

Best for Babies 8+ Months Old

Mason kept up his Oscar the Grouch act today but instead of being peckish and finicky he ate everything that was offered to him. Pure bliss for both of us. Nothing makes me happier or more satisfied these days than when Mason eats well. And because of all the teething pain, eating well has not been at the top of his agenda. I’m also excited because I whipped up a new recipe last night –  Apple-Cabbage-Raisin Puree, inspired by a Parents.com recipe — and I find it endlessly satisfying when we get to add another dish to Bug’s list of fave eats. Here’s our magic menu. What did your babe eat today?

    What a fabulous menu, Ann! I’m so impressed. I love that you added applesauce to the cinnamon-raisin oatmeal — I’ll bet Mason would enjoy that too:)

    Thank you for blogging Heather! Our 8 month old Nathan looks just like Mason. He’s in the 64 percentile for height and less than third percentile for weight despite guzzling down close to thirty ounces of formula and chomping down three meals a day. I guess all the crawling, jumping, keeps him thin. I love his peanut-size but I know my husband gets scared about his being picked on one day especially now that we meet 5 month olds bigger than Nady. It’s so great to read about your culinary adventures with Mason and to see a beautiful healthy baby boy who looks like Nathan.

    Mary–Thank you so much for reading! I have a feeling the boys will be able to hold their own–they may be tiny but I’m betting Nathan is mighty like Mason:)
