dear caleb // week twenty-seven

Dear Caleb,

With the new year, came a new adventure for you: real food!  So far, you're a HUGE fan!

We started by just giving you a little taste of various things on our plates.  Then gradually we started letting you chew on some frozen fruits and veggies.  Finally, we tried steamed or canned fruits and veggies. 

Though I think you prefer the frozen foods as they help ease your sore gums, you definitely love anything pickled!

Here's a list of what you've tried so far:
  • pineapple chunks
  • frozen strawberries (from Grammy & Poppy's garden)
  • dill pickle
  • frozen peaches (from Nana & Papaw's trees)
  • dilly bean (from Nana & Papaw's garden)
  • steamed cauliflower
  • frozen bell pepper slices (from our garden)
  • frozen broccoli (also from our garden)
  • frozen banana
  • steamed sweet potato

I think aside from enjoying all the new flavors, you're enjoying the mess you get to make!  It's loads of fun to watch your facial expressions as you explore new tastes and textures for the first time.

Though we plan to take it slow, we can already tell you're going to be a great eater...but then, we already knew that!

love you always,
mama & daddy
