Welcome to the Roe household blog. We're attempting to post 365 days of pictures in a Roe. Cork and I have been married since 2002 and welcomed identical daughters in August of 2009 after a struggle with infertility. Our girls were definitely worth the wait and I say they were destined to be here because they were conceived on my birthday, due on my sister's birthday and born on my grandma's birthday. What are the chances of that! We welcomed our third daughter in June of 2012. We all fell in love with her right away. She has two amazing older sisters who love to watch over her.

Lean Cuisine

I saw someone list in their blog what their kids are eating at 9 months and I was amazed at how differently we feed our kids. I like to feed my kids stuff that I would eat. Below is what my kids have eaten the last 2 days. They have days where they only eat a few bites at meals and want snacks in between and other days when they eat a ton at each meal. This is typically what they eat and I did not alter what I fed them so it would look good in a post.

Breakfast: Steel cut oatmeal
Snack: 1/4 of a peach (each)Lunch: Zucchini cooked with olive oil, poultry seasoning, cinnamon and oregano, grainy whole wheat bread, black berries
Snack: kiwi
Dinner: sundried tomato polenta with kale, turnips and mushrooms, kiwi

Thurs:Breakfast: fried egg yolk, rosemary bread
Lunch: polenta from Wed night, peaches (they loved the polenta last night, but were not thrilled with it at lunch)Dinner: chicken, brown rice, red beans & broccoli

Broccoli and zucchini are by far their favorite foods right now. Apparently, the food I'm feeding them is doing a great job. They are very busy little girls. I walked out of the room for a minute to add dry rice to water. I came back to see E had opened a drawer she's never seen opened and was now playing with beads that I didn't know were in there. A had crawled out of her shorts. I'm in trouble because these two are fearless and determined to get into everything possible.


  1. We feed sophia what we eat to. right now her fav (and our fav) is potatoes, spinach, brocolli and cauliflower all mashed together to make mashed potatoes, then I toss in about a quarter pound of beef. You Definitly eat a much larger variety of f food then we do. Both Chris and I are ridiculously picky..I am trying not to pass that on to sophia.

  2. MAN, am I glad to see I'm not the only one! :) We're from a much "hippier" for lack of a better word area, and now live in the "redneck" prairies where we are constantly called "granola" for our way of eating! I'm sorry, I don't mean to offend anyone, but I don't agree with kids being fed "tv dinners for toddlers"... Right now is the time period where every.morsel they eat is building their habits/bodies for life. I don't want to pump her full of processed/artificial grossness! Everyone cheats every once in awhile - treats are treats, but I couldn't imagine feeding Abby Kraft Dinner every.single.day. and not feeling extremely guilty!

    Good on you Mama for feeding them a wide variety of healthy foods!!!!

    Steps off soapbox....

  3. My mom likes to give her grandkids the super processed..quick to make foods..both my sister picked up on that..It drives me BONKERS

  4. I edited this post a few times. I think the first time I wrote it was funny, but I'm sure pretty offensive to people who feed their kids processed packaged crap all day long. I decided to just say that I feed my kids well and be done with it. Maybe I should have written...If you only feed your kids junk as babies then that's all they'll want. You'll have a life long struggle to get them to eat well and you'll be raising the next generation of over weight adults.
