Apples are a great choice for one of your baby's first foods -- they're easy to digest, are a great source of fiber, and are so versatile, they can be paired with almost any other purée.
This shouldn't come as a shock, but I am completely in awe of my daughter. She's bubbly when she's happy and stoic when she's not. She surprises us every day by using new words and demonstrating new skills. And, much to our chagrin, she's showing us her mischievous side earlier than we expected to see it.
I'm amazed by how fast she picks things up and by how much she's learned in the few months she's been in school. Sometimes, it's difficult to wrap my head around how much she's changed over the past 19 months. A year ago, solids were still new to her. But in the past few weeks alone, she's eaten a wide variety of things with gusto (especially this, this, this, and this...) and has asked for multiple helpings with enthusiasm. Her willingness to eat whatever we put in front of her is astounding!
