Potato (white)

Baby eating potato
Buttercup and I had potatoes for lunch. I baked the potatoes, then cut a few slices off for Buttercup, placing hers in the freezer for a few minutes to cool down.

She did pretty well with them. She's really getting used to the whole eating experience. The look of intense concentration she gets on her face while bringing a piece of food to her mouth is classic.

I did wonder if this potato is drier than the sweet potato Buttercup has been eating. She did gag more with this food than she has with any other. I think part of it was because large-ish chunks were falling off in her mouth, too. I could tell Buttercup enjoyed it, though, because she was doing her excited fast breathing thing she does. When she does that while eating it's enough to make me have a heart attack. I guess she knows what she's doing, though, because she hasn't choked!

PROS: non-messy, in the staining kind of way
CONS: a bit dry
