I can’t believe Theo is eight months old. Every cliché about motherhood is true, including how quickly time passes. Just yesterday, he was a sleepy newborn and now he’s an energetic little boy who can’t decide if he’s going to crawl or walk first.
Just like his mama and daddy, our little boy loves to eat. When Theo turned six months, I started cautiously introducing one food at a time, starting with avocados. I soon gave up the methodical introduction of foods, because he was so interested in eating everything we eat. Luckily, he hasn’t had any reactions to foods. We want him to have a healthy, balanced relationship with food (which is as important for boys as it is for girls), so we let him have tastes of everything. As a result, he eats spinach and kale with as much gusto as ice cream.
Avocados happen to be one of his favorite foods, and a frequent snack is ‘avocado toast’ which is avocado smashed with a little olive oil served with little bites of whole wheat bread. He loves it! He also loves zucchini (it’s true), and this avocado pesto with zucchini noodles is perfect for dinner. I only have to cook once and the whole family eats. It’s perfect.
