What has Miles eaten?

For some reason we have been taking a lot of pictures of the foods we have been feeding Miles. I guess because it is fun to see him experience the new flavors and textures. And he gets pretty messy, which is kind of cute. On the menu, rice cereal, and purees of peas, green beans, spinach, squash, sweet potatoes, and broccoli. A friend of ours also gave us one of those mesh feeder things that you can put whole food in and they can suck on it and get the taste of it. We have put tangerines and apples in that and let him experience those flavors. Aaron also gave him a taste of a lemon from his water when we were out to eat one night.

Rice, this was the very first time he ate solids.

He doesn't seem to like the citrus much, he does this little cringe and shakes his head. He really seems to love sweet potatoes and a big surprise was the spinach.
Spinach face! I loved the bright green color of this one.
Toasted English muffin. This is actually a good teething biscuit, they get really hard when you toast them.
Squash, it doesn't show up well in the photo, but trust me it was messy.
We are getting better at feeding him. The mess is a little more contained. But the dogs do get their share when they clean up the chair and tray when Miles is done. Willow is also enjoying getting the teething biscuits that fall on the floor. I love having our dogs around to clean up the food messes. Dogs and babies make a good pairing.


  1. I agree with you on the dog thing! Buddy does a really good job of cleaning up after Clark!

  2. They totally do! It saves you so much time cleaning up! Plus, their tongues really get into the cracks of the high chair so well. When Catie doesn't want something, she just throws food off the tray now and they catch it before it even hits the ground. Although, the downside is that you find evidence of what they have all eaten in the backyard. :) "Oh, I see she had peas and carrots last night" kind of thing.
