First SOLID Food!!

Hunter's First Food.
Organic Squash
I am starting to make his food now... =D
Mommy and Hunter
Daddy and Hunter
Taking A bite
This was staged, I wanted the sweet "messy" face. He was such a neat little eater!!
I am pleased to say that Hunter did such a fantastic job eating his first solid baby food! He did make one weird face in the beginning but then he did great! He is still figuring out the whole eating thing. Hunter really seemed to like squash! I was thrilled! Our Next food will be Avocado. That was actually my first choice and let me tell you I was SET on that. I went out and got the Avocado and prepared it and everything, but much to my dismay it wasn't ripe enough so it tasted Horrible!! Very, very bitter. (yep, I'm the momma that tastes all the foods before giving it to her kiddo.) I am planning on getting another avocado and letting it sit out for a few days and then making it again for our little man.
I am SO SO SO excited to start making Hunter's baby food. Please, pray that I keep the joyful spirit when a food doesn't turn out right. (because I'm sure that I will mess up another one)

Oh, how I love each new stage Hunter starts!!! The Joys of being a mommy are just amazing!
Thank you sweet Savior for blessing Jarrod and I with our precious boy!!
