The Boys Love to Eat

We started experimenting with solid foods while in FL the beginning of February. Zak took to it pretty quickly, but Ryder took a bit longer. They are both now eating like champs. We have to limit how much solid food they eat in order to make sure they still drink enough formula. If they had a say then they would eat lots more solid food and less formula, but we need to keep the formula as the main source of nutrition so they keep growing well. We are still giving them single ingredient baby foods to check for allergies.

Zak has now had bananas, sweet potatoes, squash, green beans, peas, carrots, and applesauce. He has pretty much liked everything we have given him. He did not really like the banana yogurt since he likes him food to be warmed up a little and the yogurt was cold.
Ryder has had bananas, sweet potatoes, squash, green beans, peas, and carrots. He really disliked the peas, but enjoyed everything else. He must have his food heated up or else he will not eat it so he also hated the yogurt we tried.
