Dear Kate,

As I spoon fed my daughter some yogurt this morning, I was reminded why I chose to skip baby foods entirely: this is messy! Don't get me wrong - letting her feed herself from day one has also been messy but it's messy that doesn't involve me until the very end when I hose her off. Whole steamed veggies, black beans, and cheerios tossed overboard are much easier to let the dogs clean up than smeared rice cereal and splattered purees. Besides, who wants to eat all their foods in puree form?

That being said, whoever invented the fruit and veggie pouches for on the go snacks is my vote for Time Magazine's person of the year. 

That's the big vote happening this year, right?
