They love them! The 1st 2 days we ate sweet potatoes that were in a jar b/c I didn't have time to bake the real ones. I have to say that once you bake a sweet potatoe, it is very easy to make it in to baby food. I didn't even puree it! Here is what I did...
*Preheat oven to 400.
*Using a fork, poke holes in to the sweet potato.
*Wrap sweet potato in foil (I put a tiny amount of water in there before I seal the foil).
*Place in glass baking dish.
*Cook for 1 hr 15 min (this makes it super soft).
*Using a spoon, take out the "meat" of the potato & mash.
I equate 1 serving as 2 tablespoons so 2 potatoes made 15 servings. I know that they are going to need more & will up a 1 serving to equal 4 tablespoons at some point so that would make about 7-8 servings. I did not water down the potatoes b/c after I mashed them w/ a fork, it was super soft.
I also promised pictures since I did not post any the last time.
The girls like tummy time when they can see each other.
Sofi really likes to sit up now days so she like the bumbo chair quite a bit.

Now it's Sofi's turn to chew on it!
Besides the food, things are going so-so. We are having napping issues w/ Ian. It seems now that I am breastfeeding him exclusively, he naps at the same time which interferres w/ his nap after they eat. He will cry & cry until he falls asleep. Out of frustration, I went & bought Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child & read through the book in 1 day, implementing the methodology the next day. Well, it went ok but their naps were short & the evening was very messed up. The 2nd day was even worse! I was at my wits end yesterday evening w/ very fussy babies. This made for a very unhappy mommy. I'm going back to our old schedule w/ a bit of a modification. The babies are going to bed earlier. We are working on that. Rather than going down at 8:30 (by the time all is said & done), we have started moving them up little by little w/ the goal being 7pm. That is helping quite a bit b/c they are sleeping through until about 5:30-6am! They get their little snack bottle & then go back down until 7:30am.
The only thing I find very frustrating about all this is that they were napping so well until the middle of last week & then BOOM...it all changed for Ian. I'm sitting here typing & he is crying b/c he won't give in & go to sleep. What happened? He was my calm baby. They were barely up 2 hrs. I just don't know! If there are any mommies out there that have an idea of what is going on, PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE!
