Progress
Today BB ate three chunks of steamed squash, leaving very litle behind. She's making progress! I should go and get her some O-shaped organic cereal to try.

Last night she had spinach and her face got all red while eating it, I think she may be allergic.

Update
I guess we're in the swing of things now, so I'll just write a quick update about how it's been going. Bad reaction to avocado - BB threw up that night. Same thing goes for red bell pepper. At the same time, she didn't throw up after steamed minced beef patties, even though she didn't get much in her, mainly mashed it up with her hands and smeared it all over. I'll try tofu in a day or two, once I'm sure she's over the red bell pepper thing, it was yesterday and she's still feeling the effects, I guess, because she pooped three times today already.

Dinner
Dinner was some steamed green beans (which remained intact) and some sweet potato...No sign of the chicken coming out yet.

Yesterday - chicken
So I did go out and buy a chicken leg at the health food store, and that was dinner last night. I boiled it and first gave her the bone to gnaw on and then a chunk of the meat, which she practically inhaled, with the exception of small pieces. I was really anxious to see what would come out of it, so to speak, but so far she's pooped out only the zucchini and the fig from yesterday.

Today's breakfast was an apple...and I think lunch has been safely skipped as we went out for a long walk and now she's sleeping.

Catching up
I've been bad, no blog! So: Tuesday: apple for breakfast, didn't go too well for some reason - wasn't a Granny Smith like before. Steamed turnip for lunch - didn't go well either, even steamed it was too hard for her to nibble on. Dinner...wish I could remember...I think it was sweet potato.

Wednesday (i.e. yesterday) - steamed Romanesco cabbage, didn't steam it well enough for her to be able to eat it. Gave her some rice cake to make up for it. Zucchini for lunch, and Romanesco again for dinner, but she didn't seem to really like it.

Today: apple again for breakfast, and right now she's munching on some zucchini and a fig, which, surprisingly, was well received. Don't know yet what I'll do for dinner, have to run out to the health food store. But seeing as she got her first tooth today, I think I might welcome that in with some meat!

Today
Breakfast was a half of a steamed regular potato, and I don't think I'll be giving those to her for a while - it very easily crumbled into chokable pieces, scary. Lunch was a couple of plum slices, another fiasco - got a plum-flavored high chair and a plum-covered baby, but I don't think she swallowed any. I went with a safe food for dinner, had steamed zucchini, had a couple of gag scares though.

Yesterday - hummus!
Lunch was leftover sweet potato from the day before, and went predictably well. I was going to cook last night, but would up being too tired so we got middle-eastern take-out, and I didn't have anything ready for BB, so she got half a rice cake. On an impulse, I smeared some hummus on it and boy did she like it! She sucked it off and I dabbed some more hummus on her rice cake twice more. We should go out for Indian and get some mild curry and let her try that!

Yesterday and today's breakfast
Yesterday's breakfast was sweet potato and half a rice cake, which went well, as usual. Lunch we skipped because we went out for a long walk and I didn't bring anything along. For dinner I gave her a couple of slices of pear, and even though she chewed off bits of them, she didn't seem to like them much overall, not as much as apples. I judge by the fact that she very soon stopped munching on the pieces, just picking them up and dropping them.

Today's breakfast was two apple slices, about which Baby Bunny was much more enthusiastic!

Today's fare
Breakfast: two leftover carrot slices from yesterday and a broccoli tree. Mostly thinly spread all over hands, face, highchair, and the floor.

Lunch: half a rice cake and leftover broccoli, fared slightly better.

Dinner: baby bisquit (broken in bits and strewn all over) and two apple slices, apple a big hit as always. I think I'll try cauliflower over the weekend, and also I need to get more fruit, she was trying to snatch from me the plum I was eating today.

Broccoli!
Yay! I scored some broccoli today! There was none to be had at the two organic supermarkets near home, and none at Lidl, and none at the street kiosks, but then I remembered there were better supermarkets around as well, and sure enough they had it at Edeka, even though it's not organic.

So, breakfast was leftover zucchini from yesterday, and went very well.

So did lunch, with half a steamed carrot cut into halves lengthwise.

And dinner (broccoli) was a hit! She liked broccoli a heck of a lot more than her daddy did. Though she kept grabbing it the wrong way, grabbing the flowery part and chewing on the stem.
