Six Months of Munching.

Wow, a whole six months have passed since I joined this blog and began BLW with Millie. The time has gone by so quickly! I just read my first post back in November. I had forgotten how daunting it felt to begin, how worried we were about her weight, how sad I felt about giving her formula (lasted about two weeks!) and how haphazard my approach was. Millie has gone from strength to strength, overcome the weight issues and grown up into a....toddler. It's her birthday next week and as other babies are learning to self feed she is confidently eating from a spoon and drinking from an open cup.

For your amusement, here is a (not quite) alphabetical list of what she has eaten so far...

Avocado, aubergine, apple, asparagus, alfalfa sprouts, amaranth grain, artichokes, aduki beans, apricots, arame, banana, broad beans, butternut squash, butter beans, Brussels sprouts, bread, blackberries, blueberries, broccoli, basil, beetroot, beef, blackcurrants, cabbage, courgette, cucumber, cauliflower, chilli, chickpeas, coriander, carrots, cinnamon, coconut, cavolo nero, celeriac, celery, cod, chicken, daal, egg, fennel, figs, grapes, garlic, ginger, haricot beans, kale, kohl rabi, kidney beans, leeks, lettuce, lemon, lime, lentils, linseed, mushrooms, mint, mango, mustard, melons, mussels, millet, mustard seeds, parsnips, parsley, pear, peas, polenta, peppers, plums, potato, pumpkin, pop corn, papaya, pinto beans, prawns, poppy seeds, onion, olives, oats, olive oil, quinoa, raspberries, raisins, rosemary, rice, shallots, sweetcorn, spinach, spring onions, strawberries, swede, swiss chard, satsuma, sweet potato, squid, salmon, sesame seeds, turnip, trout, vanilla, watercress, watermelon, wakame, water chestnuts, yoghurt and no doubt plenty more!

Happy Days,

That is some list! Way to go, Millie!

It's hard to think back to the beginning. It really was daunting to start BLW, and now it seems so normal.

I keep trying to sing this list to the periodic table song :0)
