Bear wasn't born into the digital age like Ace was- I certainly didn't own my awesome Canon Rebel back then. He also didn't have a Mama who blogged regularly about his adventures until he was 3 months old. So, since I was recently digging through old photos, I set aside a few of the digital ones we actually have that document one of my favorite stages with him- learning how to eat!
~pineapples, black beans, banana and avocado
Bear was almost 6 months old and I had just discovered the concept of Baby Led Weaning. I was startled and excited by it. I still am as I go through the same amazing stage with Ace.
~ cucumber, hamburger, cheese
I LOVE foods and I love that my boys are developing an appreciation for all sorts of culinary tastes. Walk down memory lane with me as I fondly remember Bear's beginning days of Baby Led Weaning...

Fast forward to today, and at 4 years old this boy can eat! For dinner tonight he had tofu, a slice of tomato, smoked trout, 2 raw beans, and some pasta. He has announced that while on vacation he would like to try eating "shark" and "swordfish". I might have created a monster. One can never be too sure, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Baby Led Weaning helped to create this healthy, adventurous eater.
