Like most parents, we have fun giving Sophie little tastes of our food to see what she likes. She’s had teeny bites of ice cream, and would easily have eaten a good bit of fudgecicle. Big Sis gave her a taste of Popsicle, and she liked it so much she actually cried when she couldn’t have any more. Last night I dipped my finger in spaghetti sauce and let her try it – that was a hit, too.
Last week Big Sis was at home sick from school, so Mom was home from work with her. I made some of this soup for our lunch:
Of course, Sophie woke up right as I served myself a bowl. After she nursed, she played with Big Sis while I ate, and I let her try some of the broth. She LOVED the soup. There are a select few foods she gets THAT excited about, and this is one of them. I will definitely be preparing this one again!
Yesterday, also, we were at a church dinner and someone made chicken and dumplings. I think every church dinner in the south has this dish, and we couldn’t be happier about it! Sophie finished her acorn squash I had brought with us, and still was hungry. I put a little of the broth from my plate on a spoon and fed her. She LOVED it. Big Sis was nice enough to spoon a little onto a small plate just for Sophie, and I fed her that also. The chicken was cooked until it was VERY tender and falling apart, so a few bits made it into her mouth. She did very well with them, though. Her Nana also mashed up a bit of baked apple from a dessert and we fed her that. She does enjoy her apples.
