WHAT SOFIA EATS

As we approach nine months, we've been experimenting with self-feeding, chunkier textures, and new flavor combinations.  We've gotten the okay to start adding simple proteins so we are making some new choices for breakfast- eggs!  

* It's important to note that babies cannot have a full egg (I.E. egg whites) until at least after a year old.  The yolks of the eggs are perfectly safe, but the whites of the eggs contain a protein which still remains a high allergen for those under one year of age.

As far as technique goes, I found it was pretty simple to crack the egg and dump out the whites while cradling the yolk, then you can mix the yolk with breast milk or formula to scramble in a small frying pan until crumbly.  We paired Sofia's meal with some small chunks of avocado made for little pincher fingers! ;)  As a precaution, you can watch your baby for a few days to double, triple, (or quadruple) check for any type of allergy before introducing new foods.  Yum!

  1. Is it weird that I'm craving Sofia's food? 'Cause seriously, it looks so good to me right now...

  2. Haha... not at all! I think that's the point! To not give her something I wouldn't eat myself, right? :)

    Speaking of eggs... I'm hungry!

  3. So, did she eat it? At 18 months Ben is finally starting to like scrambled eggs and sometimes avocado. I find feeding Ben soooo difficult...trying to keep mealtime interesting and healthy! I love hearing what other people feed their kids for ideas! :)

  4. @whatbenwore - She did! The eggs she liked, but what was weird, is she hasn't had avocado since she was around 6 months, and I'm not sure she's a fan of the texture this time around!

Easter Weekend

Hello! Happy mid-week to you. This is the roll of photos we shot over our Easter weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice to have family here to visit - even if the weather was cooler than we anticipated! We visited the redwoods in Felton, ate vegetarian burritos, went to the epic shoreside in Montara, and the brewing company in Half Moon Bay. Our hearts are full and our home is feeling quite empty now ;)

As a side note, I've found a renewed love with film. This is a post for another time, but it bears mentioning here! There has been much on my mind re: photography, and hopefully this will be the space I can share that.

For the curious, all the above were shot on a Nikon FM10 with Fuji Superia 400 speed film.

The Long And Short Of It

Hi, friends. How was your weekend? After having non-stop rain for nearly a month, we finally received a short break in the El Niño weather to head to the coast. Even though it's not in our backyard, I still feel like twenty miles to the beach is a good compromise. It really is lovely here and it makes me happy to see the girls so at home in the sea.

This week we are gearing up for Easter and some very special visitors -- my Mama and my sister! It will be the first time Mom has seen our new home or visited the Bay Area, so to say we are excited would be an understatement. We cannot wait. I've even kept it as a surprise from the girls, so I'm sure the look on their faces alone when they see Grammie and their Auntie will be the highlight of the whole trip.

What about you? Any special Easter plans or crafting?

We made some hot crossed buns for the first time last year, and I'm hoping I can bake a little something special this year too. We're going to try this recipe a…

Made It To Another Weekend : The Table

Oh, weekend. We are so happy you're here. It's been a doozy lately. I won't put you through the pitiful details, don't worry-- but I'm just happy to exhale a little bit and am welcoming these days of togetherness with open arms. PS- look at me using unfiltered iPhone photos in a blog post. Who am I? Sometimes I don't even recognize myself. Truly a measure of just how exhausted I really am both mentally and physically ;)


And while I've been seriously down and out in every other area of my life, we've actually been doing some pretty cool things at home. I'm so proud of Sofia and her desire to soak up new information, to learn, and to think of me as a pretty cool "teacher". I'm so in awe of everything she does. But this is all part of the inevitable fact that these kiddos of ours are growing up. 
Most days we'll do some kind of worksheet, practicing our letters and cutting skills and getting to color.... other days we'll just spe…
