Sweet Potato Baby Cookies
Can you believe Enceladus just turned 8 months? How time flies! With month 7 came her craving for finger food! No Mom, she doesn’t want to be fed with a spoon, she wants to feed herself!
I admit, it does get a little messy when she feeds herself but it’s lots of fun to watch! And honestly, nothing warms my heart more than to know she loves Mama’s cooking (she’s a big fan of my dairy free mashed potatoes too!).
Life has been filled with happy moments of “first foods”. The first pureed baby food, the first sticky time she ate watermelon, the slippery first time she ate avocado, the sour face lemon taste, the happy face of tasting jam on toast, etc. Sweet potatoes have been a favorite of hers for a few months, but I had to figure out a way to serve them in a way that she could feed herself since she prefers finger foods over purees nowadays.

With the arrival of baby, I find myself lagging during the afternoon and forgetting to eat lunch.
