fruits that begin with the letter "p"

We got the go ahead from Dr. Rachel to start Connor on some oatmeal at his four month visit. I was a bit hesitant, but ever so hopeful that it would help with his thrice nightly wake ups. Mommy would give her pinky toe to sleep until 3am. He did reasonably well with the oatmeal and once he stopped spitting it out and actually eating it, we moved him up to twice a day meals from a spoon. Over the weekend I decided that he was doing well enough with the cereal and we could move onto Dr. Rachel's next step; fruits that start with the letter "p." Pears, peaches, plums and prunes.

I made a batch of pears and all the baby food knowledge I gained in 2007 came back to me immediately. So I chopped, steamed, pureed, put them in ice cube trays and froze them up. He looked skeptically at the baby spoon when I presented the pears to him the first time, but after just one bite he was swallowing with wreckless abandon. Surely he was thrilled with the sweetness of those bartlett pears. Wait until he gets a load of the amazing swoon worthy goodness of the peaches I whipped up tonight.
