Morgan and Real Food

Tammi, my cousin's wife, introduced us to the idea of baby-led-weaning as a way to start solids for Morgan.  Based on her suggestions, I bought the book to read a little more about it and really liked the idea.  Basically instead of starting Morgan on purees, we start her on solid food right from the beginning (6 months).  We were going to wait until Morgan's official 6 month birthday, but one of the things that the books mention is that your child will let you know when they are ready to eat solids by reaching for the food on your plate.  Morgan has been doing this for the past week, so we decided to let her join us for dinner last night. 
Below are some pics of Morgan emjoying her dinner of pork roast, broccoli (her fave pasrt), asparagus, carrots, and potatoes.

Broccoli really was her favoriteAchew on.  The cats preferred when she had the pork since she seemed to drop everything she ate on the ground!

Asparagus and pork in one hand!
