Bethenny, did you make Bryn's food for her when she was a baby? And if so what types of foods would you make for her? I'm trying to make sure I make everything I can think of for my 9 month old before I introduce him to the foods we eat.
thank you.

First, Alanis looks great. She is also so much less camera shy then she was 15 yrs ago when she was finding herself as an artist! And I'm glad she grew her hair long again.
2nd, thanks for bringing up the bathing question. That is much less talked about than breastfeeding. I have 2 daughters and my husband would bathe with them in our big garden tub when they were little. It probably stopped around age 6. There is no shame in nakedness in our house, but he was a little afraid of what they might say to others. However, one night a little friend of theirs slept over, and in the morning she woke up before my girls did and came looking for me. I was in the shower with my husband. (Just bathing...) Don't ask me why I didn't LOCK THE DOOR - but I tried to speak to her with the shower curtain pulled tight and the little poopster said, "Is that your daddy in there?" I said, "No, my daddy lives in Philadelphia. That's my husband. That's Becca's daddy." And she kind of giggled and went off to find the juice boxes in the fridge. I wonder what she mentioned when she got home!
