Hadley does not like my cooking

15 Oct

I love to cook and knew that making baby food would just be part of my weekly routine. Not sure if I made a mistake by offering Hadley the organic jarred version first but my logic was to see what she liked, and then make her favorite foods from scratch. I think this plan has backfired. Last week I made her acorn squash and she was not so keen on it but I chalked it up to her never having had it and maybe the texture was a little strange. This week I steamed fresh organic carrots and pureed them to the same consistency of the Gerber version and she nicely spit them into the sleeve of her onesie. I tried several bites and each time she would lean over and let them fall onto her sleeve. After half the serving of carrots was all over her- I switched to the Gerber version and she ate every last bite. Now, I have 12 servings of carrots that I guess I will keep in the freezer for a few weeks and see if she changes her mind about homemade baby food.

We stopped at Cracker Barrel on the way down and thought Hadley might enjoy her breakfast on the porch. We were mistaken- the fans, the rocking chairs and the nice ladies next to us were way to exciting.



She had fun with Aunt Marilyn in the hospital lobby. We should have gotten video of her very loud noises and the echo effect but we were too busy trying to keep her quiet.


And, luckily the hotel did not cause any sleep problems- we are guessing that is because she was in constant motion the whole time and was completely exhausted by the time bedtime came.
