We bought a high chair for Katrina last week. Her doctor said I could go ahead and feed her stage one baby foods since she has been doing so well with cereal. Though she said I could feed Katrina twice a day, I usually only get around to it once, either in the morning or in the evening. Sometimes she only eats a few bites, sometimes she gobbles up everything that I give her. I'm starting her on green vegetables first, currently green beans. Yum (read: yuck!!!). At least she likes them. I'll eat spinach, I'll eat lima beans, but I hate green beans.
We're really happy with the high chair we chose. It's not the ugly one that we were originally going to get (phew!). We considered a wooden one that Graco makes. This one, though, was cheaper, folds up neatly, and is portable enough that we can take it to her grandparents' house in New Jersey. I hope it holds up well. I like that it doesn't clash with our furniture and is more pleasant to look at than some of our other baby gear. I also bought her a Crumb Chum bib, which, while pricier than a normal bib, doesn't have to be washed each time. I can just wipe it off with the same rag that I wipe off her face, hands, and high chair. I'll admit, I'm sad to be starting this new stage! I like nursing her and having her rely so much on me. But she'll be nursing still for awhile, and it's a lot of fun to see her reaction to new experiences, so I won't stay sad for long.
