New adventure

I got this crazy idea that I needed to make Carson's baby food homemade. I thought that it was going to be hard and time consuming but actually it was really easy and fast. I made sweet potatoes tonight and tomorrow I'm going to make carrots.

I cooked the sweet potatoes in the oven and then let them cool. After that I skinned the potatoes and mashed them in a bowl. I then pureed them and got them to the consistency that I wanted. I used formula and a tiny bit of water. After that I poured them into the ice trays and they are in the freezer. Tomorrow I will pop them out of the ice trays and put them in labeled baggies and they are ready to eat!! I hope he likes it! The 2 potatoes made 2 ice cube trays full and he is only eating about 1 ice cube size right now. He is still preferring his formula but we are trying to get him to eat more. He was only doing about 1-5 spoonfuls but now he eats about 1/2 a container of food.

I will keep you updated on how everything goes and what other kinds of food I try to make.
