Growing foodie

Matthew celebrated 6 months of age last week. We're excited to report that he is quickly becoming quite the accomplished foodie. After a long conversation with Talya after my last blog post about Matt not liking rice cereal, we decided to try something more tasty. Luke and Will never seemed to mind rice cereal but Matt was clearly not a fan. Thanks for the advice, Talya!

We started with bananas (he loved them), then moved on to sweet potatoes, applesauce, squash... and the new one this week, green beans (see photo above). He's showing clear preferences of fruits over vegetables, but that isn't surprising considering who his father is! Neither Will nor Luke ever tolerated green veggie baby food, so they turned a slight yellowy hue when they were this age from all the orange vegetables they were eating! Trying to avoid that this time around...

Matt had his 6 month pediatrician appointment as well. He's already 18.5 lbs and 27 inches long - sticking right there on that 75th percentile line. His head, unsurprisingly, is still at the 90th percentile. I take all the blame for that :)

Avocado and apple puree was popular at our house. Congrats to Matt and Will on chowing down!
