We introduced Mason to food at 6 months (okay, a few days before that) and it has been so much fun for all of us.  After much research, surprise, surprise, we chose the path of baby led weaning.  In the past four weeks he's had a good variety of grub to chomp on.
  • Carrots
  • Potatoes
  • Chicken
  • Beef Roast
  • Asparagus
  • Cucumber
  • Pork Burger
  • Cheese - Mozzarella & Colby Jack
  • Watermelon
  • Cherries
  • Strawberries
  • Apples
  • Lemon
  • Banana
  • Summer Squash
  • Clementine
  • Cantaloupe
  • Guacamole
  • Green Pepper
  • Garlic/Chili Powder Baked Fries
  • Pineapple
  • Tomato
  • Sausage
  • Ham
  • Orange
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Mashed Potatoes with Onion Powder
  • Red Pepper
So far he seems to enjoy everything when in the mood to eat.  It has been amazing seeing how coordinated he's become with his food over the past weeks.  He's definitely learning a lot!  Mason has also become very skilled with the sippy cup.  He gets water with every meal.  His favorite foods are cucumber and strawberries right now.  It gets messy at times (most of the time), but it is worth it.

Hooray! Look at him go with the sippy cup! I need to offer it to Burkley- he likes drinking from our cups and I haven't even tried to give him a sippy.

And I agree with you, it's so fun to see how quickly they learn and get coordinated with feeding themselves! I love knowing there's another mama out there doing BLW with a baby pretty close in age to mine. :)
