We are in the middle of a heatwave here this week, (it's been 45 degrees for a couple of days, that's 113 when converted, not expecting to have a cool change for a few more days) and last week when we went in for our 6 month check up the nurse made a suggestion of 'baby ice cream' which is mashed banana and formula blended together, then frozen.

Woke up this morning and thought I might give it a try, I don't have a proper mold for one, so I ended up using a spare bottle lid with one of Audrey's spoons in it to use as a stick, but it worked.

She was confused at first, but once she figured out how to eat it she was happy



But then it went downhill. She realised that on very hot days frozen things feel very nice when rubbed in your hair, so she just rubbed it all over her head, then threw it on the floor where it broke into lots of little sticky ice pieces, and then the cat sat in it.

So I had to wash a baby, the floor and a very grumpy, sticky cat.

If we do that again, we might do it outside...

Lately we've been feeding Adelyn bottled food now which we don't really have an issue with until lately. See, she absolutely LOVES the fruits and for awhile I was giving her only fruits because they were for babies just starting out on solids. Well, when we tried to do veggies and meats, she kicked up a fuss. She even went so far as to gag with every one of them and force herself to puke it up. Now I have a battle to try and get her to eat it.

So for now, I am stopping the fruits and just giving her whatever she can manage to keep down in everything else. Oh the fun! lol.

Apparently I learned nothing because I made her a blueberry one yesterday.

Thank goodness the cool change came through last night.

I had to laugh out loud at the description of your mess (I bet that was fun to clean up ) but I'm sure she had a blast eating it!!

AND....I'm TOTALLY jealous of your heatwave. This 20 degrees (F) and below junk...I'm over it!
