Even More Baby-Led Weaning

Well, we are almost a month into our baby-led weaning experiment. James is pretty reliably feeding himself, though he does still sometimes mash the food onto his forehead. This method is supremely, supremely messy, hence the baby in only a diaper in the bumbo chair. When he drops his food, I can pick it up off of our table and put it back on his tray.  So far, he's eaten: sweet potato, banana, avocado, carrots, beef, pork, chicken, asparagus (this was just exactly the perfect size and shape for him to pick up), regular potato, blueberries, pear, plum, applesauce, egg yolk, and bell peppers. I've offered broccoli and cauliflower several times, but he still hasn't eaten any yet, and I tried peas once, but he only had a taste. I'm offering usually two meals per day. In any case, he enjoys mealtime a great deal -- and gets upset if he's not included when the rest of us are eating.
