more peas, please!



I have a confession to make-GASP!-I don't make my own baby food for the twins. Now, the reason I say this is because I DID make it for Harrison. You see, I do feel a lot of guilt with the twins-partly because I nursed Harrison and formula-feed the twins. (Not that there is anything wrong with formula-feeding, believe me I don't want to open that can of worms.) Although it did work the first go round with Harrison, breast-feeding did not work for me the second time around. Main reason being my body wouldn't produce enough milk for 2 babies....so I digress....Anyway, I don't feel as though it is worth the time (or the money) to make my own food for the twins given the price of organic produce down here. It definitely was a lot cheaper in NOVA. But what I have found is that the boys get more variety of foods than Harrison got. I love, love, love the Earth's Best Organic line of baby food. It's available at my local Target for around 50 cents a jar (a big jar).

Brady and Jack couldn't be any more different, but they both have loved everything from this line that I have given them.....plums, bananas and rice (together), peas and brown rice, corn and butternut squash, apricots and apples, raspberries and apples, sweet potatoes, you name it...they have eaten it. I really am hoping that they won't be the picky eater that my sweet Harrison has become. I hope that one day we will here the phrase "more peas, please!" often in our household! Here's to good eating....

Yay! I can't imagine making enough food for two little guys. That Earth's Best stuff is wonderful.

That stinks that your organic produce is much pricier in SC. You need your TJs to open soon. I went there today and got excited to pay only 89 cents for a pound of organic carrots. Sad. Very sad. :)

Do you have Earth's Best at Costco? I know we did in DC when Melissa was feeding Tess. They stocked it in the diaper section.

As you know I made more with Jake than Rachel, but really not much I had to cook first and certainly nothing I had to strain. Bad memories of cleaning the pot, the steamer, the blender, and the colander for a few ice cubes worth of green beans.

You know, when I wasn't feeding kids baby food, I saw Earth's Best at Costco...but when I started feeding A I couldn't find it. I love Earth's Best but couldn't find it in the local groceries (or that many varieties). We branched out into Gerber Organics and Safeway's House Brand. But I was not sorry to see A refuse the jarred stuff and want "real food" instead.
