I had decided that if we tried for 5 days and Miles hated eating the entire time, I was just going to stop for a couple weeks and then try again. I didn't want his first association with food to be a negative one. But, luckily, he changed his tune yesterday and enjoyed quite a few bites of sweet potatoes (which also happen to be one of Mommy and Daddy's favorite vegetables).

After they eat their food, I've been trying to give them a little bit of water in a sippy cup. They still have no idea what to do with it, but it's cute to see them "drinking" from it (with a LOT of help from me). I removed the diaphragm from the inside so that it will actually drip water - there is no way that I would actually be able to get them to suck from it right now.
I've finally learned to roll up their sleeves (duh!). This makes the entire process a whole lot cleaner. They still manage to get their bibs all twisted around and they end up with sweet potato in their hair, but I think we're making a lot of progress in establishing a little feeding system here.
Last night, I made some peas. We'll try them today and see what they think. So far, I love making their baby food. It makes me feel like I'm really doing something truly good for my babies, and it's really easy, too!
