    I’m so glad you wrote this! I was trying to figure out non baby finger food just today. My daughter will be one in a week and only has her two bottom teeth so these are good ideas.

    Kudos to the mommies feeding their toddlers healthy unprocessed foods. Leave the junk for 1-2 monthly and or special occasions.

    Tamera, O MY just who is that grown young lady sitting up there? just how
    is she growing up so fast and with such a personality!! the older she gets
    the more she looks like her big brother Aden,I have always said that, and
    always will she look like Aden and her Dad, she has her momma beautiful
    skin color,but that face is all Aden and daddy!! and I see her Dad (Adam)
    agrees with me,she looks like Aden!! I am glad he is smart and a wonderful
    Dad, just like my hubby!! family man that adores his wife and kiddos.
    Our 3 kiddos keep hubby and I pretty busy, so I don’t get on social media
    a lots, I follow your blog, and sometime look at your pictures on your Instg.
    and your hubby instg. to see Aden and Ariah pictures which is all way so
    Some of the comments to both of you are so hate full, and these same
    people will be on the internet saying that other people are hater, but they
    can not see how ENVIOUS,JEALOUS and BITTER they are, the stupidity
    is REAL. There intent is to divide you and your hubby, I am so happy you
    guys are showing them it is not going to happen.
