We've always started with squash as the first vegetable to feed our kids...no particular reason, other than perhaps it's pretty easy to make. (I make our baby food, unless we're traveling, in which case I do buy some jars for convenience's sake.) When Grandma J saw the funny faces that Charis made while tasting her first veggie, she named the expression "Squash Face." We continued the Squash Face tradition by giving the boys squash for their first veggie, and yesterday Kenna got her first taste as well. It was quite the event, with five audience members! The kids got such a kick out of watching Kenna, who seemed a bit overwhelmed by all the attention in conjunction with the new taste.
Here's a video of the experience. You can hear the kids' comments!
