One of my favorite things here lately is introducing Birdy to new, nourishing foods. We have exhausted her supply of jarred food that came with her from her foster home, and have ventured into fresh, whole foods with thicker textures.

I had been hesitant to introduce foods to her because of her very fragile digestive system. She has been diagnosed with reflux and in my opinion, needs some serious rebuilding of the gut flora. She will begin probiotics this week to assist in that. A little fennel here and there will also assist in her healing.
It is an absolute joy to introduce new nourishing foods to our girl. Isn't it a wonder to open the world up to a child, little by little? One of the greatest gifts of being a parent, I think.
