What to feed a 7month old?

So Jacob has been eating soild food since he was 4 months old. I make all my baby food purée. When can he start to eat stuff that isn't puréed as much or little finger foods. Or should I been giving it I him now. Or wait till he gets some teeth? He is breastfeeding too. I just don't want to hold him back.

    When my daughter was 6 months old I started giving her big chucks of things to chew/naw on. Like a big chunk of steak, pork chop, biscuits, bagels, anything really as long a it was plain. I also started feeding her puffs and freeze dried yogurt and it really helped her get used to chewing small things. She is now 8 months old and eats just about everything we do as long as it's not greasy and I don't think it will turn her stomach. She hardly likes purées anymore and freaks if I'm eating without her.
