Sweet Potatoes!

Joey has been eating sweet potatoes for months now. However, he has only had the puree, bland, nothing added. Yesterday he tried the real deal (yes, complete with butter, brown sugar and marshmellows!) After several bites of the sweet potatoes right off my fork, I tried to slip in a bite of mashed potatoes with a little gravy on them. He instantly started gagging and spit them out. It was pretty funny. I think we may be in trouble now! He sure did love those sweet potatoes. He had this look on his face like "why have you been keeping these from me?" It was too cute!
Ordinarily we would have spent Thanksgiving with my family in San Diego, but my Dad needed time to recover from his surgery. So at the last minute we decided to stay here and spend the day with Tony's family. Thank you to Tony's cousin Kim and her husband Bruce for having us over and thanks to the entire Scribner family for sharing their Thanksgiving with us. We love you guys and we had a wonderful time!


  1. Yummy! Joey's got some good taste!! So glad you guys had a great Thanksgiving!

  2. HAHA!!! I love that story! We've been VERY SLOW with the food. He's still doing baby food first stage. And formula. and we are ok with that.
    Sweet potato is his favorite. Maybe I'll make him some real sweet potatos and see what happens!!
