Hello! I am pretty new here too, but have found everyone very friendly!
I started out with purees but now my little one is 7 months and loves getting her fingers into stuff, I am thinking of adding some finger foods to the mix. But think I will still continue with purees as well so she does actually get some food as I expect most of the finger foods to end up on the floor LOL! My next challenge is to start getting some small lumps into the purees!!
Good luck whatever you decide with the weaning. You'll probably find the baby makes the decision for you
