Mia is 10 months old now so she's ready to eat small soft chunks of solid food. I cut up some avacado for her yesterday and cooked up some apples. I peeled, cored, and sliced apples and boiled them for 15 minutes then let them cool a little and cut them up into small chunks. She thought it was pretty great. I think she felt like a big shot.
I also made some carrots for her. I cut the carrots into small chunks then steamed them until they were soft and mushy. She doesn't have teeth yet so I have to make the food soft enough for her to mush up with her tongue.
