Fan Photo Friday: Baby’s First Foods

Friday, June 1st, 2012

I’m pretty excited to share these Fan Photos of Baby’s First Foods with you all! We have some¬†seriously cute babies in our Mom’s Milk Boutique community…check them out!

Here’s Robbie at about 6 months old¬†trying pears for the first time. His mom says he was ecstatic and that she never fully appreciated how exciting pears can be until she saw Robbie’s reaction to them.¬†Isn’t it¬†cool how babies can make old experiences novel for us again? They¬†remind us to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, like¬†the juicy sweetness of pears.

This is Jordan’s 9 month old son who is still exclusively breastfed, however he recently tasted a lemon. I don’t think¬†he cared for it very much,¬†lol!¬†:) Jordan says although it looks like he was crying, he was not.¬†His reaction was delayed as well; he made that face a good 5-10 seconds after he licked the lemon. They did not expect such a face from tasting the lemon, but what a great expression to capture in a photo!

This is Jolene’s son at¬†one eating¬†a bowl of oatmeal by himself¬†for the first time. She says that this picture doesn’t do his mess justice… there was oatmeal EVERYWHERE !!! But he definitely enjoyed himself! Don’t you just love how focused he is on using his spoon? Kudos to mama for letting baby self-feed despite how messy it is.

Here is Channing at 5 months enjoying some yummy frozen blueberries. His mom says he’s loved blueberries ever since.¬†Not surprising since he looks pretty happy about his blueberries in this picture. And just¬†look at those sweet cheeks!¬†What a cutie!

This is¬†Tracy’s son. His¬†Grandma¬†took him to¬†Burger King to which Tracy says “Ewww! We don’t normally eat that stuff!”. I hear you¬†Tracy…we also have grandparents that give our kids all sorts of junk food that we normally don’t eat. I think it’s a rite of passage for grandparents or something? At any rate I love his serious expression in this picture.

This is Orion, who according to mom his Daddy has a history of¬†letting baby “taste”¬† totally inappropriate, grown-up palate pleasers (raise your hand if your hubby does the same thing!)….however¬†they do make¬†funny pictures like this one¬†of Orion gnawing on an enormous turkey leg.

Although¬†his real¬†first food¬†that mama sat down to feed him was an avocado at 6 months…which he loved! Avocados make a wonderful first food for babies. :)

This is Emmy’s first time eating cereal. Her mom says the experiencing was a little shocking for Emmy who wasn’t sure what to think of it. Her big eyes have a lot to say though, don’t they?

Here’s my chunky monkey at 7 months old having a mashed banana for the first time. He would make these hilarious faces after each taste, but kept wanting more…

Thanks to all who sent in photos for this week’s Fan Photo Friday. And the winner of the 25 Milk Miles is….Channing with his adorable smile and his blueberry goatee!
