Food Storage

I make Branson's food in bulk and freeze it. I have several containers ranging from the Williams-Sonoma beaba silicone pods ($25) to Dollar General plastic tubs ($1). This is frozen mango and strawberry applesauce. I froze them in the DG plastic tubs. If I use the WS pods or the cheap DG brand I still cover EVERYTHING in plastic wrap. I have noticed that I get freezer burn if I don't do this. I think making sure you let the purees come to room temperature can prevent freezer burn.

I also DO NOT microwave the plastic. I run warm water over them and pop them into a glass dish like the one above in the photo. Then I  nuke it for 1 minute.

The perfect Pair*

Harry & David pears are de-lish!

Pair of Pears ;)

Pear Puree

My mother in law got us a gift from Harry & David's fruit of the month club. Their pears are unreal! I didn't like pears until I tried these. You have to eat them standing over the sink because the juice runs down your arm! Branson LOOOOVES THEM.

Peas on Earth

Peas (before straining)

The peas were too lumpy for Branson and I had to strain them by pressing the peas w/ a rubber spatula through a metal, mesh strainer.

Too runny! But pretty pic.

Final product! I added the 1st batch of lumpy peas to the second one and this was the right consistency.

First bite of baby food!!!!!!!! Peas are nummmeee!

We finally meet Kailyn!

My best BEST friend (Sondra Lafferty Riney) lives in San Antonio with my niece Kailyn and her husband J.R.
This is my favorite shot of her. I love white backgrounds with babies.
 Its so pure and simple and I love how you just see Kailyn in this, nothing else. :)
 Kailyn is 6 weeks younger than Branson and we'd never seen one another's babies until this Christmas! I have been dying to love on her and of course take her first portraits. She's such a beautiful child. We love you SO MUCH Kailyn Elizabeth!

She looks so snuggly in her winter hat. :)


Love the color in this one. She looks like an actress. :)
She loves her feet! This was her momma's favorite. I love her eyes. They sparkle.
