With the orders from the doctor, we could not wait to see Anna Kate eat her first veggies. So we took a trip to Wal-Mart to load up on some baby food! We decided to go mostly the organic route to cut down on some of the chemicals, additives, and preservatives. I am not going to be completely extreme in the organic thing, but why not feed your baby the most healthy thing you can find? I am also excited about trying to make a few baby foods myself. It's a whole new world when they start eating solids! Her first vegetables were carrots. We chose this because my mom told me that carrots were my first! Anna Kate really enjoyed them! She made one cute face on the first bite, but after that she ate them like a pro! We followed the carrots with some pears for desert.
Chris. Amy. Anna Kate. Throw in a dog and a couple a cats, and that's our little family! Chris and I were high school sweethearts and were married in 2005. Anna Kate stole our hearts and changed our lives with her arrival in September of 2007. Our time together as a family is now spent on playgrounds, playing with baby dolls, watching Sesame Street, reading board books and finger painting. My wonderful husband deals with the headaches of the stock market all day, so that I can have the privilege of staying home with our beautiful one year old. This is a peek into our world.
