5 Lessons I Learned During the First Year of Motherhood
It seems as though we've been together forever, my son and I. It's such an honor to be his mother - to teach, guide, and navigate life with him as he opens up my eyes to all this world has to offer. I cannot imagine life without him. I knew that motherhood would change me - but I didn't realize that it would change my soul.
Baby-led weaning is a method of introducing solid food to your baby. You skip purees and go straight to finger foods. This is supposed to improve dexterity early on, teach babies how to regulate their appetite, and introduce them to a wide variety of flavors and textures that promote healthy eating for a lifetime. We tried baby led-weaning, and it was a huge success! :)
The sun warms our skin, and a light breeze fills the air as we admire the delicious harvests of seasonal fruits and veggies at our local farmer's market. I love being able to connect with the farmers and artisans, and meet the hard-working people who grow our food. Local farmer's markets contribute to healthy and sustainable food systems that preserve our land and community. We are always sure to opt for organic or pesticide-free fruits and veggies while wandering through the market. Organic food isn't just healthier for you - it's healthier for our planet too.
