Kori's Veggies

I've been making all Kori's food myself from fresh fruits and vegetables.. 
Not only is it so much healthier but A LOT cheaper! Here Is a new recipe I am trying today.. 

"Vegetable Medley"
ages 4-7 months
Serving contains Carbs/Vit E

1tsp olive oil
1 Lg Carrot peeled/chopped
1 Potato peeled/chopped
1 tbsp. Peas
2 tbsp Corn ( I skipped the corn bc I've read its hard for younger babies to digest)
4 tbsp water

Heat olive oil in a small pan over medium heat. Add carrot and fry until soft, about 5 min

Add potato,peas,corn,and water and stir to mix. Bring to boil then reduce heat and cover. Simmer for about 15 min stir occasionally. 

Puree in blender

( If yours turns out a little thick like mine, add a little breastmilk/formula.. for little ones who are just starting out on solids and trying new things this might help it taste more familiar)

After blending it I freeze in ice cube trays and then store in Tupperware/Freezer bags.That way you have perfect portion sizes! ( 1 serving = 1-2 cubes depending on baby)

*SPLish* SPLaSH* Kori's Kiddie Pool

We picked out a cute little kiddie pool for Kori that is just perfect for those really hot days. Today I set it up in the shade under a nice big tree in our yard 
(the same tree that her swing is hung in).
She had a fun time splashing her feet and we were even visited by a neighbor's (very pregnant) kitty. She came to check out what we were doing but one she spotted my crazy little mermaid in the pool she took off.

Here are some shots of my *big 5 month old!* playin' in her pool =]
