cooking for baby

Did you know that babies (most especially ones who love to eat) are the most wonderful people to cook for? Every taste is new. Every texture an experience. Every bite so filled with the love of the cook.

chicken noodle soup
boiled sweet potato bites
apple-pear sauce
rice and spinach (Vietnamese-style "rau")

I adore making a good spread for this baby of mine. It does my heart such good when her eyes light up, and her lips exclaim, "Ummm. Mum. Yum!" Her kindness knows no bounds when it comes to mama's cooking. She's an eager eater, this one, and ne'er a complaint I've yet to hear about my offerings to her.

    
Oh, I can hardly wait to share all of the garden goodness with her! And with her crawling around anywhere and everywhere, she could use all the extra energy she can get (Mama could use some extra energy, too).

  11. It all looks good enough to eat! I'm glad your little sweetie is such a good eater. Since you have been exposing her to lots of different foods, she probably always will be! :)

  12. It is so sweet how you delight in cooking for your baby. My first child was such an eager eater, and I loved making his food myself. Such quiet, lovely days.

  14. I made 90% of our baby food. She has been such an adventuresome eater. The other night she ate all of the asparagus I picked out of the garden. I firmly believe that we make our kids the eaters they are. And, yes that rice spinach does look tasty. I think we'd like that.
