Consistent parenting (!)

I love these two photos, taken 2.5 years apart, unintentionally.  The two older kids having their first taste of broccoli or first experience of real 'solid' food (we did a bit of 'baby led solids' / a bit of spoon feeding... all very casual)  They were so NOT impressed. 

I couldn't wait to get the third (and final!) installment when Ollie was offered a broccoli 'branch'. But, you know what this monster child went and did? Loved it. Ate it all. Mushed it up and smacked it in to his mouth and then picked up as many little pieces as he could and ate those too. 

I know it will have no bearing on his penchance for broccoli once he is older. The FlourGirl loves it now, while the Wombat almost vomits when asked to eat anything green.  
But at least they can look back and see that we treated and fed them fairly, equally and consistently!

Oliver looks just adorable - I don't think I've ever seen a baby happier! And lovely to have similar pics of all your children at the same stage (and even happier that it was accidental!). x

Those are hilarious! :)

Especially the first one, the look of hostile disgust is priceless :)

What gorgeous pics! My little girl's almost 5 months, so the fun is about to begin for us :)
PS. Where can I find the recipe for the pie in middle photo of your header? It looks delish!
