It is so much fun to see the joy that Harry takes in his food. He such an amazing eater, there has only been one food that he has refused. He did not seem to like avocado but that could have been because I used our baby food grinder to make it instead of using the blender. Today he ate a large bowl of spinach. Personally if it was me and someone was trying to spoon feed me some pureed spinach I would spit it in their face. Not Harry, he joyfully consumed the whole bowl.
Since he is such a big eater I am making more of the baby food myself. If I had to rely on the tiny jars that you can get from the store we would go through them at an astonishing rate. Harry can eat two of the stage two jars (3.5 ounces each) mixed with cereal (the cereal thickens it up and is a great filler) and an hour later he will want a four ounce bottle before bed.
It is going to be interesting to see how much he consumes when he is a teenager. My mother-in-law has filled my head with tales of the amazing quantities consumed by my husband when he hit his growth spurts. I have a feeling that I will be shopping at Costco more than I am right now.
