Tonight with Miles’s dinner I made him a smoothie.

A blueberry, strawberry, (banana bread frozen) banana, BREASTMILK smoothie! It was his first experience with anything like a smoothie. He didn’t let the new experience slow him down. Even mastering the straw with only just a few pull-the-straw-out-and-fling-smoothie-all-over-the-kitchen moments. I call that a success.

I may or may not have tried this smoothie. And it may or may not have been my very first time ever tasting breastmilk. (what??.. too much information??)

I also may or may not have let Miles take this smoothie into the bathtub with him since he didn’t finish it at dinner, and we may or may not have had a blueberry speckled bath.

While we are on the subject of new food adventures, I’d like to introduce you to Miles’s first pizza :

Homemade wheat crust, homemade tomato sauce, and topped with all sorts of delicious vegetables of the non-allergic-too variety. Black beans, peas, broccoli, carrots, corn & green beans. YUM!

After the first initial gagging, he loved it. And loved it again for lunch the next day, and dinner, then lunch again and then dinner again. I think you see where this is going. Tonight’s dinner was the last of it.

Tomorrow I attempt Quinoa and black bean hamburgers! I am so glad we don’t have to eat like him…


  1. That smoothie looks so delicious that I totally would have tried it too! If it was my own breastmilk, that is, not yours because that would just be weird.

    This post made me smile. I'm so happy that Miles is able to eat so many more things now. That must be such a remarkable feeling for you.

  2. He looks so grown up! I know Abbi loves playing with straws, but I don't think she's actually successfully had a drink from one.
