I just want to say that my 14 yr old twins were raised as vegetarians. DS1 is still a vegetarian, and DD has chosen to eat poultry, pork, and buffalo.
I also want to add that I was told DS1 would be extremely sick most of his life due to having scarred lungs from being born prematurely, and he never once got very sick. He's had 2 minor colds and chicken pox his whole life. He is extremely healthy, even though he's confined to a wheelchair.
I also made their first foods using a food processor. They didn't get rice cereal and I used organic produce for them, when it wasn't the thing to do. I didn't know I was "crunchy." LOL Cloth diapers, organic, homemade baby food, BF, co-sleeping, no circ, and AP was just something I did because it felt right. It seems strange now that I was so young and under extreme pressure to do things the mainstream way, but I raised them how I wanted.
Anyway, with DS2, I fed him jarred Earth's Best and organic rice cereals, as well as table foods. He has tummy problems. I don't know if it's attributed to how, when, and what I fed him, or if he got genetic tendencies.
With DS3, Greyson, I plan to not feed him baby food at all. He watches us eat and tries to grab our utensils, but no more than he tries to grab my keys or hair.
He's also is a strange little guy in the fact he doesn't shove things in his mouth (except his hands) like normal babies do. Maybe he's not teething yet or something. I have no urge to feed him.
