Tailgating and New Food!

Last weekend we skipped tailgating because Danny was out of town for work, but we were back at it today. It was a quiet, relaxed day -- it rained half the time, but it was nice and sunny the other half. Morgan had a great time -- she even got in a really good nap.



Yes, that would be a bow on her head! I decided to try again, and this time she didn't seem to mind. I HAD to try today because the last time she wore this outfit was in her six-month pictures. And instead of looking like a pretty little baby girl, she looked like...well...a future starting linebacker for the Tide. Allow me to refresh your memory:

Ha ha! Does she not? Yeah, so Mama had to put a little bow on that head today. Maybe that means we can start wearing bows more often.

Another first today:

Yes, Mo ate store-bought baby food for the first time! It's weird because I don't consider myself a crunchy mom, but I was a little sad when I went to the store and bought this. When she first tasted it, she had a weird look on her face. I tasted it just to see how it compared to the homemade food, and the store-bought was SO much sweeter. It's like I could taste the actual sugar (though I'm not even sure if pure sugar is in it). And the funny thing about it is she wasn't crazy about it (which I was secretly thrilled about). I think she found it much too sweet, too. She ate it, but wasn't crying for more like she usually does with her Mama's food. Eat your heart out, Gerber! Okay, not so fast...here's why:

I've briefly mentioned when Morgan first tried chicken (that I made) -- and she hated it. After several more attempts on different occasions, and even using spices (once she was old enough), she still would not eat it. So I tried beef. Same thing. I just left it alone, but brought it up to the doctor that I didn't think she liked meat. The doctor wasn't concerned because she said she gets her protein from formula, but I still wasn't crazy about the fact that she wasn't eating meat. So for weeks I've been asking myself how I could get some meat into her diet. Well, after today's experience with the baby food, I thought I could try these:

Yep, store-bought. And these are meat only. I will continue to make her fruits and veggies. Notice that these are Stage 2 jars (Morgan is at the "Stage 3" level); I plan to mix these with her chunkier foods. Now if she eats these, I'll be convinced that she doesn't like my version of meats. Ha!

I thawed and discarded the chicken and beef out of these tonight, which I made and froze a couple of months ago. They'll never be eaten.

But in the spirit of continuing to make her food, I whipped up a month's worth of pears tonight. (And for the record, I'm not one of those people that are against store-bought food. I just really enjoy making her baby food.)

Here are some more pics from tailgating. (Notice the change of clothes -- spit-up accident.)




Have a great weekend, everybody!
Edited to Add: It's almost midnight, and I don't do well with blog posts this late. So if I'm talking crazy or rambling in this post, please ignore it. I almost always cringe at a post the next day after I've posted something late the night before!
