Patrick’s first real food

December 02, 2008

In honor of Thanksgiving, Patrick ate his first “real” food on Friday. While everyone else ate turkey leftovers, Patrick munched on sweet potatoes from a jar. He didn’t seem to like them that much, although that may be because we forgot to heat them up. (Alex eats everything, no matter what the temperature, so I think that’s why we forgot this step.)

The original plan was to feed Patrick some of the sweet potatoes from our Thanksgiving meal, but we forgot to set some aside before they got covered in butter, sugar, and spices. Even I, normally not a sweet potato person, thought Molly did a great job with them this year. And surely Patrick would have loved them. Too bad we have to introduce one food at a time.
