    I feel like such a slacker.

    With my DS4 I took a yearlong maternity leave. I joined mommy groups and read message boards and baby books. I made my own baby food and all that other stuff.

    The twins turned 9 months today. In addition to there being 2 of them and them not being my first child, I am also teaching full time.

    We have a great nanny who is here during the day and I'm home by 3:30, but I feel like we are just cruising along.

    They are still taking bottles and we give them baby food each day, but I can't for the life of me remember what DS was eating at this age. I want to say that by a year he was eating a lot of table foods which would mean he started with them around now-ish.

    So at about 9 months old...what does/did a daily menu look like for your little ones?

    Here is a link from the first year handbook about baby food. At 9 months old we were just introducing finger foods like banana, avocado, toast, etc. They weren't really eating it though. I did 3 baby food meals a day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    By nine months, my kids were mostly on all table food. And they were eating three meals a day-with a snack here or there. And as for bottles, they had three(although Annabella at almost 12 months is now finally on three bottles).

    Mine had just gone to 3 meals a day at 9 months, and were taking 3 8oz bottles as well. I still used mostly baby food, mostly for convenience, but they were eating finger foods like diced soft fruits and veggies, macaroni, scrambled eggs...etc.

    Right now my duo are just 9mths and they are eating soft mashed or finely diced foods - grilled cheese sandwich, rice, potato, cooked veggies, apples, bananas etc. I offer 3x a day with cheerio snacks during the day if I need them corraled in the kitchen for cleaning purposes! LOL
