baby led weaning

 We are almost one month into letting Elsa explore food & have been having so much fun!  

 We're trying out the Baby Led Weaning (BLW) approach & we're loving it!

 Elsa is usually given whatever we are eating in easy to hold chunks.  

 We started slowly, but jumped right in as soon as we felt comfortable with how she was handling the foods she had tried.

 She always tastes everything on her tray, but doesn't always go back for more tastes.  ;)  Her favorites have been avocado, sweet potatoes, apple sauce, chicken, broccoli & lasagna.  She also loved my dad's smoked pork!  It really is so fun to feed her what we're eating.

Of course, most of the time the food comes right back out.  :P  She only has one tooth, so she is still working on getting pieces small enough to swallow.  Meal times are super messy, but quite pleasant, since Elsa stays entertained with her tray of yummy food.  We haven't missed spoon feeding or pureeing fruits & veggies, that's for certain!  ;)

Here are some more fun shots of Elsa's food adventures from my phone camera. :)
