Happy Birthday, Ibes!

My little Ibes is one year old! Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!

Here are some pictures from his little Birthday party.

Adventures in Eating

Ibes started eating solids at 7 months. His first food was rice cereal, and we introduced pureed fruits and veg next. His favorite was prunes - how strange is that? He likes and still eats purees and cereals, and we've added in small pieces of real foods now.

Toast and Bananas

I made some penne with marinara for lunch this week, and he was really interested in my food. I decided that it wouldn't hurt to let him try some, so I cut the pieces into fourths and let him have at 'em.

He ate a staggering amount of pasta. He's definitely my son.

Other favorite foods include carrot chunks and banana applesauce muffins.

We went to Cazadores for Mexican tonight, and brought along his usual dinner of baby foods with some Puffs for dessert. He polished off his food and kept eyeing my plate. I gave him a taste of beans, and he was hooked. After finishing the remaining beans, he plowed through the rice.

He didn't even care that I used my fork and not his baby spoon. I have a feeling we're going to have to put in a real order for him next time we have Mexican.
