I mentioned the other day about the baby already being too spoiled to eat store-bought baby food. Can you blame him? I mean, have you ever actually tasted that stuff? So last week I cooked up some homemade baby food. Butternut Squash, Acorn Squash and Sweet Potatoes. These are the easiest things to do. I just baked the squash whole (I poked a few holes with a knife to let out steam). I baked one of each of the varieties of squash, and three sweet potatoes. I put all of them in a 9x13 and slow roasted them. Once they were soft, I pulled them out and let them cool enough for me to handle them. I pealed the skins off, removed the seeds from the squash, and one at a time blended them into a smooth puree. I had to add a little water to the sweet potatoes and acorn squash, but the butternut squash was juicy enough. Then they were spooned into ice cube trays and frozen.

Loose Ends and New Beginnings
Pinterest around Christmas time, and thought I'd give it a shot. The pin was a link to an etsy shop where someone had made ornaments with glitter footprints on them. I thought that would be super cute to try with the baby. The difference is that the ones on etsy were made with glitter stickers, and I was going to use glue and real glitter - and a squirmy baby. I used Mod Podge glue. I was worried that the Elmer's would crack and peel off eventually. And my tacky craft glue was all dried up (as usual). So I got out the Mod Podge, and painted it onto the baby's foot.
