Ben Appetit!

Now that Ben is eight (eight!) months old, he is happily surviving on more than just breast milk. We started him on smooshed fresh bananas, and those continue to be one of his favorite snacks.

Cranberry-Spinach-Mango Green Drink

Now that little Ben is seven months old, we are introducing him to big people food. As far as pureed foods go, he loves bananas, blueberries with oatmeal, and mango.
