Piper + Sweet Potatoes and Cookie Day Giveaway

Guess what, you guys! Today, August 4th, is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. OH yeah!! More on that to follow. First, let me share with you Piper's adventure with her second food (much more healthier than cookies); sweet potatoes.




{You can read more about her first run-in with food -- carrots -- by clicking here.}




When Piper turned 6 months old, we introduced her to her second food; sweet potatoes. Let me tell you -- my girl LOVES her some sweet potatoes! After a couple bites, Piper was reaching, smiling and kicking for more!





As you may know, I am a stay-at-home mom. In being at home with Piper every day, I have a little more time {haha -- some days} to go the extra step and actually make homemade baby food for my baby girl. I didn't want to make carrots homemade because of the nitrates, but I did make sweet potato puree for Piper and will share a post on how that went, soon!




Spoiler alert: it went very, very well.




Piper has got a strong instinct to feed herself; she just loves to grab the spoon and make a mess of her face. As soon as we're almost finished with each feeding, I let her make all the mess she wants with it. And so it begins!

Now -- back to talking about cookie day!
