Frightening finger foods & Family meals

It's been a while now since I've done a weaning update. Joey's 9 months old now and he is really good with his food, he will eat anything.

Since our last weaning update he has progressed quite a bit and he's eating more family meals. I'm not the most confident of cooks but I love to make meals that all three of us can eat instead of having to prepare something different for Joey. The only food that he isn't sure of is fish, he always pulls a face when I give him anything fishy. But his meals look something like this...
Breakfast
Toast, baby cereal or Multigrain
Lunch
Ham sandwich and fruit
Tea
Spaghetti Bolognese, Chicken curry, Pork caserole, Sunday chicken dinner, pasta bake, corned beef hash.
Snacks
yoghurt, fruit, chocolate  (very occasionly).

So that's an idea of the sort of thing he likes at the moment. Finger foods are hit and miss at the moment, when ever I've given him finger foods he just threw them on the floor. The finger foods I've tried are Organix Strawberry Rice Cakes, Organix Carrot sticks, Heinz Biscotti and fruit. When he first tried the rice cakes he just threw them on the floor but I kept trying them with him and then he got the hang of putting them in his mouth and sucking but then he'd tear off a bit and he'd start chocking. The same thing happened with the Biscotti bits so I've become a bit scared of giving him finger foods.

We also discovered recently that Joey LOVES ice cream. When I mean love I mean if we give him a little lick of mummy or daddy's ice cream and then take it away he has a massive crying tantrum. I'm really happy though that he's experiencing new foods and i love seeing him enjoying his food.

What do your baby's love to eat? Any good meal ideas? I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks for reading
