Getting creative with finger foods…

Miles can eat exactly 2 things.
Sweet potatoes and Apple sauce
(sometimes when we are feeling really adventurous we mix the two!
We are all about living on the edge…)
I have been concerned lately about how this not eating will affect him later in life, and how not having finger foods will affect his motor skills.
After some research and brainstorming we decided to try cutting up his frozen cubes of sweet potato puree and using that for finger food…
He had NO clue what do do with it at first. He just smeared them around.. a lot!
(I love this video because we catch a little glimpse of what we call “The Hulk” He cliches his fists together so tightly and shakes his whole body when he’s mad! We love it… [for now!])
(We also love at about :25 seconds when “Nosey McNoserson” has to see what the dog is growling about…)
We finally got smart at a restaurant last week and realized we could just cut up a cooked sweet potato.
He liked that a lot more and eventually got the hang of getting those slimy little bites into his mouth. We’ve even done it a few times at home…
I love being able to find a little bit of normalcy in our new routine…

    SO sute! I love when he stretches to see the dog!!

  2. What a cutie! What a great idea to give him the sweet potatoes as finger food. I struggle to come up with ideas, and we don't have any restrictions so far!
