Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Posted on August 3, 2015

Hi friends! If you follow me via Instagram (@MeetTheWoods) or Twitter (XoLaurenWoods) you know that I and 7 1/2 months pregnant! We are over the moon excited for our new addition coming this October! Of course with pregnancies, come pregnancy cravings! My number one craving to date is French fries! I could have them day or night! With ketchup or plain! From anywhere! Obsessed!

When Chandler was 4 months I introduced rice cereal. I slowly began to introduce puréed vegetables and fruits. I tried baby food and he wasn’t having it. He was spoiled by the real deal. Could you blame him? Chandler has enjoyed a variety of global cuisine. Whatever I’m having he’s having, of course larger more complicated things have to be broken down into a manageable size. Today for lunch Chandler enjoyed teeny tiny hot dogs with bananas+blueberries and baby Swiss cheese! I also gave him…
