Sitting and eating

Mister is sitting! Last weekend he'd sit for 20-60 seconds. This weekend he sat for 3-5+ minutes!! He learned so quickly.

We've also started giving him some real food. He's tried sweet potato fries, avocado slices, cucumber slices, peach slices (canned and fresh), tomatoes slices, lime wedges and lemon wedges. We haven't done any purées and I'm not sure we will do a lot. There's a concept called "baby led weaning" where you let baby self feed and don't spoon feed them at all. We'll probably do some purées but it's really fun just handing him a chunk of food and letting him go for it. He's really loved everything we've tried so far! Breastmilk is supposed to be his main source of nutrition for the first year, so it isn't a big deal if he doesn't actually eat a bunch of real foods.
