pretty pairings

Making your own baby food is so easy, and in my opinion fun.  I am scared of the jared baby foods that have a shelf life of three years.  What the heck is in those little jars that makes the food "fresh" for three years?  I'm not buying it.  So I have decided to make all of Quinnes food.  It's healthy and I know just what is going into her tummy.  She has just started to show a real interest in food.  We tried around five and a half months and would only get four bites down.  So I didn't push it.  And then she had a cold for about eleven days and wanted nothing but me or a bottle.  Now that she is feeling better we have started a regular routine of breakfast, a mini lunch and dinner.  We have so much fun feeding her these new flavors.  She is so silly and entertaining to watch.  I just love it!  And you can freeze this food up to 3 weeks.  You're making it in bulk and that will really save time, money and your sanity.

I made some of Quinnes favorites the other day while she napped, without a swaddle(gasp!!!).  More on that soon!  So I hope these fun pairings help you if you are in a rut or just want to venture into homemade baby food.  But I know there are times when you don't even have time to brush your teeth, let alone make baby food.  Am I the only one who forgets to brush her teeth and realizes it at the grocery store?  Aaahhh!!  So, for those times I really like these pre-made foods that contain nothing but real, no sugar added ingredients.  They are handy and perfect for on the go times.  Yum.  

Happy eatings!
