Evelyn will be 8 months old in 4 days
and we have been doing BLW since she turned 6 months old. We also started with banana, which she was not impressed with the first time we gave it to her, but by the third attempt she wolfed down a 1/3 of a banana.
She now loves sitting down and eating. She gets very excited when she sees me getting her bib for her and starts to squeal. I would say her two favorites are sweet potato wedges and avocado. A close third would be hard boiled egg yolks. I give her the whole yolk and she will play with it for a bit before she crushes it in her palm. She always lets out this little baby sized diabolical laugh when she does that.
I have also exposed her to some chicken breast. I wasn't planing on it, but last weekend I made homemade chicken soup and had taken the chicken out the broth to shred. The meat was so tender and falling apart and she was watching me intently from her highchair, so I figured what the heck. She really got into it.
I have given her soften apple wedges and shredded fresh apple and she much prefers the shredded fresh apple (don't blame her- I don't like cooked apples either!). She has also had acorn squash, butternut squash, both steamed and boiled carrots, blueberries, pears, peaches...I feel like I am forgetting things. Oh, shredded cheese! She had a lot of fun with that.
I just picked up some whole milk yogurt for her to try this week. I'm sure a bath will be needed after I let her go to town with that.
