    toast (although I guess I gave that earlier than some), banana pieces (we never mushed them up), avocado, kiwi, mangoes are all good finger foods, cheese sticks/cubes, baked/steamed apple is supposed to be good though I haven't done it yet, baked pumpkin, sweet potato, squash slices, steamed eggplant and broccoli

    there really are a lot of choices :D For Hannah's dinners we do a mix of jars and home made--mostly pastas, some chicken with cous-cous though we are starting to branch out more now and given her strips of meats on their own...

    I make a few things for Ellie that she loves her favourite is chicken, red pepper, onion and sweet potato stew its really easy to cook you just skin the pepper fry it all up and boil it in baby chicken stock. It was that nice me and Benn had it for our dinner to. She also loves ratatoulie i skin the aburgine so it blends well she smells of garlic after eating that though lol.

    not really....I've been pretty laid back I guess. She'd handled rusks just fine so we tried the toast and she did well with it. I mean I always kept a close eye on her while she was eating but she got so much spit on it that it dissolved pretty well in her mouth :rofl: I was giving her Cheerios before she was 6.5 months old :blush:

    Really? AHHHHH I am so scared. Helena has only had the jarred beginner foods, and then the sweet potato/turkey and the carrot/peas combo. How do they know how to chew? :rofl: I am so clueless. Helena is almost 7 months old.

    lol... you never know, its a few months off ;) We were thinking August anyways. Our other date for trying would be late next spring.

    We have a big wedding in 2010 that we have to travel to, so the baby either has to come a few months before, or I need to just be pregnant so I can go on a plane...

    ya I feel kinda silly planning this around SOMEONE ELSES wedding... but oh well hahaa
