Baby Food

My sister-in-law Carlie and brother Scott threw us a baby shower this weekend at our house. It was a fun afternoon with lots of family and friends.  Carlie is a fantastic party planner, so there were decorations, a color theme, and good food.

One of the highlights was the ‘Guess the Baby Food’ game, where Travis and I sampled various unlabeled baby foods and tried to guess what they were. 

This is much harder than at seems as all baby food is 1. mushy  2. a revolting brown or green colon  3. almost tasteless. 

We might have correctly identified 3 of 10 or so jars.  The most puzzling foods to identify were the green vegetable – I guessed peas, Travis thought it was broccoli, but it was  actually green beans.  The macaroni and cheese was had the worst flavor of all of them – I thought it tasted like paste and Travis thought it tasted like flour and water. We had no idea it was supposed to be mac & cheese.  The meat blends were also a challenge to figure out – Chicken?
Turkey? Beef? Who’s to say.  Then there were the chicken sticks. These are like tiny hotdogs for babies. I’m pretty sure that Scott and I ate these on a regular basis when we were little and absolutely loved them.  Now that I have adult tastes… they’re really terrible. Essence of chicken, soft, and weirdly wet. Travis ate his in 1 bite, but also didn’t seem to enjoy it much.  Photos are forthcoming for anyone who wants to see the taste-tester’s expressions. 

Now I understand why some people make their own baby food.

Belly Shelf

Filed under: Baby Dunbar, Blog — Kerry @ 5:50 pm

I have a belly shelf now.  I can rest my hands on the top of my belly comfortable or rest a cup there.  Unfortunately, this also means I collect food on top of it.  I never thought of myself as a messy eater, but judging from the amount of food that ends up on the shelf, I’m starting to wonder.  Maybe because this is also because I spend more time eating, but I’m not sure.  Yesterday,  I had pieces of cupcake stuck on the shelf. Today, Mom took a photo of me with a glass of water on the belly shelf.  I’m 32 weeks. There’s still a lot of growing to be done.  I wonder if I’ll be able to balance a whole plate of food on there?
