DS also had water available in a sippy cup all day. He's had carrots, green beans, peas, squash, yams, sweet potatoes, potatoes and turkey so far. I just mash it up and serve!
I should also note that DS is 32" long and 23lbs 10oz, so not a little boy by any means, so I assume he eats more than the typical 8 month old!
