This week, Evelyn turns six months old. She has been very interested in our food when we eat, and will mimic chewing motions with her mouth when we are all together for meals. Our original plan was to wait until she was six months or sitting up on her own, before introducing her to purees. She has far surpassed the stage of sitting up, and is now crawling and pulling up on furniture. With her six month birthday in just days, we decided that it is time. She is definitely ready for babyfood!
We decided that we would start her on Avocado, the same as we did with Jonah. Avocado is very nutrient rich, has a mild flavor, and is even less likely to cause allergies than rice cereal which could cause grass allergies.
She really enjoyed her first food!
