How About Sweet Potatoes?

Since rice cereal was such a big hit, we thought it was time to start giving Evelyn some real food. (Let's be honest - single grain rice cereal is not real food). I was hoping to start with pepperoni pizza, but I was outvoted 2 to 1. Both Steph and Evy's doctor thought it was a bad idea. What? I was going to cut it into small pieces...

Anyway, sweet potatoes it was. The first couple bites went down just fine, but then Evy's taste buds realized what was going on. This stuff was not rice cereal. But did she like it?

Sweet Potatoes

Not so much.

We're not sure if it was because of the taste, the color, or the fact that it was not pepperoni pizza, but Evy didn't seem sold on the sweet potatoes. I could have predicted this, as I don't like them either. I was trying to tell you all from the beginning.

Now, the number for Papa John's is around here somewhere...


  1. Aww she's so adorable! My daughter didn't care much for solids in the beginning either, scrunched her nose up and spat alot out until she got used to the texture of it. Now her mouth is open and waiting before I even get over to her with the spoon.

  2. Where's my bib? You forgot my bib!! I'll get it all over my pretty shirt, and then you'll have to look at sweet potatoes all day! Where's the fruit? Rumor has it that fruit is better. OK, I'll eat this for now, but hurry up with the fruit kinds of food. (Grandma C. speaking for Evy!)
