The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

Bulk Baby Food Batch #1: Complete!

In the coming month Roscoe can look forward to filling his belly with:
  • Organic Carrots
  • Organic Peas
  • Brown Rice
  • Bananas
  • Dates
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Organic Apple
  • Organic Chicken
  • Oats
I mashed the fruits and vegetables after steaming when appropriate, and used a food processor to chop the chicken and carrots.

I bought the Beaba Freezer Trays, but I just wasn't patient enough to wait for them!

Instead I lined two baking sheets with wax paper, evenly spaced tablespoon-sized scoops of each food, and put the sheets in the freezer. Tomorrow morning I'll combine two to three scoops in Ziploc bags and store them in larger freezer bags.

Think of combinations like banana/date, sweet potato/rice, and chicken/apple/oat. . .YuM!

UPDATE: Here is the result!



I wasn't sure how easy or difficult it would be to make Roscoe's food from scratch, but after going through the process once, it really could not be easier. While I love to buy baby gear, I learned there is no need for special containers or apparatus. I canceled my Beaba order and saved myself 40 bucks!

  1. Fun stuff ahead! We used ice trays, which are pretty handy too. Also, avocado is a great one, and really good for them. No prep ahead of time, just mash it up fresh. I think that was Maddie's first food after the rice.

    Can't wait to see pictures of Roscoe chowing down!

  2. Hey Rorie!

    He tried avocado a few days ago...he hated it the fist time. The second time I couldn't get between him and his avocado. :) He loved it! He also enjoyed papaya.

    Ice cube trays would be great, and probably take up less space than two half sheets!

    Roscoe better love food as much as the rest of us do!
