As of this past weekend, John is eating solid food for three meals. John is 13 months with four teeth. He has been breastfeed exclusively until last weekend.

Last weekend he decided it was time to eat and swallow food.

I chew up almonds for him and that has been his favorite. He really loves blueberries, sweet potatoes, raw spinach and bananas. He does not like apples.

He still breastfeeds. He request food by going to his red bowl, pointing in it and then making a sound that means food. He only does this when he wants food and not when he plays.

This feels right to me. I have watched for his signals. It feels good to be turned into him and his process of growing. My baby is now a toddler.
