    Well, if you were to use a good old sippy cup instead of feeding her out of a wide mouth mason jar, she might not have such a scary moustache, one that covers 2/3 of her face! Or, you could take the blueberries out of the recipe, but that would make it impossibly boring, even though her moustache would be less like a singer in an old fashioned barbershop quartet.

    The part we liked best was that she was still working on getting the rest of the good stuff into her mouth, even while Mom was taking pictures.

    So what do I do if I don’t have a W.W. vanilla smoothie mix? Hmmmm?

    katrina, you can use any protein shake mix.

    dad, although it may look like i used a mason jar, it was actually a children’s cup from ikea. she just gets so excited to drink it that she tips her head back and opens her mouth. her face gets progressively messier, it’s quite entertaining.

    Hey, I’d love to see that. I love this picture. Her eyes and tongue say it all.

    Is Gwen the one holding the cup in that picture? You are very brave if so.

    I have to say that sounds kind of wierd, but I wouldn’t mind giving it a try!
    We should start a little recipe club, playgroup – that could be fun!

    summer, i promise you can’t even taste the spinach. and because of the berries you can’t see the green. i have a bunch of purees from that cookbook deceptively delicious. you have it too, right?

    kristen, thanks. we are so happy it’s over now!

    I don’t get it. Is this something you’re supposed to make, or did Gwen’s spinach baby food get mixed up accidently? Seriously. Let me know. (Hi friend!)
