Solid foods

I love purple carrots!
Ellis is eating solid food 2-3 times a day...if I remember to feed him.   I've been making all his baby food (steaming/blending/straining) and freezing them in ice cube trays.   When I bought a couple of pre-made baby food jars for our recent trip to KL, he didn't even like them.  I've been pretty lazy in the baby food department and he's been eating a lot of the same foods lately, so I'm trying to make an effort to diversity his diet (although I haven't been brave enough to try making many veggie purees yet).   Here's what he's been eating lately:

Pear
Pumpkin/squash
Yogurt
Tofu
Potato
Apple
Brown rice & chicken
Watermelon
Purple carrots
Purple potato
Banana
  Ellis eats way better that we do and I have to admit that his food is delicious.  Pureed chicken isn't as gross as it sounds.  He's liked everything we've given him so far, although sometimes he is totally uninterested in eating. Next is the finger foods.  I really want to give him Cheerios, but I can't find the original kind here, only the Chocolate or multigrain kind with a lot of added sugar.  Bummer!
