These are the photos that arrive on my cell phone throughout the day. They’ve taken a decidedly food-y turn of late as Hollis discovers apples, peas, carrots, prunes, bananas, pears, yogurt, squash, brown rice, oatmeal, broccoli, turnips, grapes, peaches, kiwi, sweet potato & that pretty much everything she can get her opposable thumbs on needs to go in her mouth for immediate processing.
Emily has become a class 5 ninja master of baby food prep & storage! And if it mashes, Hollis will try it.
Who can contain this much cause for celebration in just one day? Hollis and her Dad commemorated their first Father’s Day weekend with even more food than usual. Interestingly, both celebrated with bananas – Hollis takes hers mashed up and straight from a squeezey tube, while her dad takes his via cream pie dessert from Philippe’s! Extra-special Father’s Day breakfast meal of “lazy oven French toast” w/ warm raisins, grapes & strawberries lovingly prepared by Emily Dawson.
Hollis celebrates Annie’s birthday with a lawn party, complete with her new favorite thing – puree of apples & bananas
Non-Hollis related note: on this day, her mom and dad both tasted mulberries for the first time.
Hollis Caroline Hughen tastes solid food for the first time through a mesh bag.
