My husband and I love avocado. Alexander did not even try avocado for a FULL YEAR. Seriously… he was 18 months, and I tried giving him avocado for the 1,000th time. And he ate it! It was a good day.

Ah, life with two kids. It’s easier than I expected, to be honest! Annabelle is just over 6 weeks, and Alexander is turning into a big brother now. He finally enjoys his little sister, which is nice to see. Sure he thinks she’s playing sometimes when she flinches or kicks, and he plays back. And he thinks it’s hilarious. That’s fun.

A Day in the Life: Baby-Led Weaning with a 10-11 Month Old
Hey y’all – I’m Rachel and I’ll be your guest poster today! Big thanks to Bethany for having me here while she snuggles her sweet newborn. I honestly can’t remember when I first heard about BLW; I do know that it very quickly became the right fit for our family. Healthy eating habits and trusting Rosalyn’s own preferences & instincts are really important to me so BLW made perfect sense for us. It’s been so much fun the past several months watching her explore tastes and textures. It’s also served as a great reminder to clean up our own food choices to provide a good example for her. In general, she’s a good eater with a few under-the-weather/teething/not-super-interested weeks thrown in. Here’s a typical Saturday in our house!
