Let's eat!

I sometimes feel like the triplets live in their table.  They are getting the hang of table foods and their menu today included ricotta pancakes, blueberries, yogurt, aidell's chicken hot dogs, peas, bananas, pasta wheels, carrots, watermelon and lots and lots of cherrios and puffs. We are still dealing with some texture issues but overall they have made a lot of progress.

 Less baby food (purees), more food, more mess!!!

Marcos loves food!  I think he will try anything and is quite fast at feeding himself when he is hungry.

And now pictures of Carlitos...notice the clip, he won't keep his bib on!!  
Carlos is still working on his pincer grasp, but it does not slow him down.  The advantage...he lets mama feed him more than the other two.

 Sofia was already in the tub. So far she has been the pickiest with foods, textures and new tastes.  
Maybe a little bit of big sis in her.  She likes to be in control and is very observant as to what goes in her mouth.  They all eat very differently which is fun to watch.
Most of the time its fun feeding three and a lot easier than feeding Isabella at this age and even now!
The trio is also eating:
ground turkey and beef, some chicken, carrots, peas, corn, beans, tofu, potatoes, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, edemame, egg yolk, toast, 
pears, peaches, grapes, cherries, 
mum mums, crackers

Suggestions on what else to try?


  1. I don't have suggestions on food; it sounds like they have a great variety. I would definitely recommend the Tomee Tippee bibs though. They are plastic and have a lip at the bottom to catch dribbles. You can just rinse them off when they are done. It saves a lot of laundry and mess, and they last forever.

  2. Shredded cheddar cheese is a favorite in this house! Along with whole wheat pancakes, French toast, and whole wheat noodles (cooked longer than usual) with a little bit of butter and parmesean cheese. Oh, and I can't forget about the blueberries! They could eat the whole container if I let them :) I love the pictures! Its just what my girls looked like after lunch today.... straight to the bath after that!


  3. Glad they are eating well. Tofu? Impressive. And Marcos has some serious cheeks. I love it!
