DAY 319: Baby Hunger Strike!

Mama J spent hours steaming and pureeing organic fruits and veggies for Jake’s food. And I mean hours. Sweet potatoes, white potatoes, beets, split peas, squash, apples, pears, zucchini, pumpkin, spinach, carrots and broccoli. She mashes the mess into ice cube trays and freezes them. When Jake needs a meal, BAM! Pop a carrot cube in the microwave for a few seconds and it’s dinner time!

Yesterday, he was having none of it! Every spoonful DENIED! From spitting it out, to batting it out of Mama’s hands! He looked like Linda Blair in The Exorcist! Rather than get frustrated, Mama handled it like a champ. She reverted to a couple of foods that Jake tried and loved in the past. Papaya and garbanzo beans. But, she did have to use a little mommy magic to get him to eat a few bites…. (That was before this video, obviously)

I will spit pea soup on that thing lady!!!
