Sweet Potatoes!

The twins have started eating vegetables, and we decided to start with sweet potatoes. Until now they haven't eaten any food except for rice cereal (which smells disgusting with the formula I mix it with), and Erik was not too enthusiastic about it. I could get him to eat it, but it was clear he didn't like it. I was worried he was going to do this with all foods, but luckily that was not the case. Both boys LOVED sweet potatoes. They have had it for lunch for four days now, and they can both eat a whole jar after nursing! I'm excited to try a new veggie tomorrow.
Baby David's before shot. He looks so cute in his little band!

Here's baby Erik looking scared in his before shot.

And here is "after David" with a messy but happy face (and an empty bowl!)

And baby Erik's after shot. His bib was so messy because he would get so excited that he would push the food off the spoon before I could get it into his mouth. He even made yummy sounds. I love it!

Hi! I'm new to your blog, but I just had to comment...my daughter (Lennon) will be getting a helmet soon as well. It's nice to see that your son looks SO cute in his!

PS My girls have the same high chairs, AND just started sweet potatos today. =) Small world.

It's so fun seeing their expressions with the different foods and how they have such distinctive tastes being so young!
