Boohoo the weekend is over! This is the first time in months when on Sunday evening I started getting sad that the weekend was coming to an end. I’ve gotten so used to Motozo being around everyday (4 months to be exact), but now that he’s back at work the weekends are so precious and special!
On Sat we tried steamed carrots.
After only a couple taste he disliked it so much that he started fussing to get away from the table. On Sunday we tried steamed apples. That too he disliked. Now whenever I sit him down at the table with food in-front of him he won’t even reach out to grab the food. 😦
But there’s happy news at the very bottom of this post.
On Sunday we had a wonderful time hanging out with our baby friends. Ty was his usual loud self and he made Hannah cry haha. It was so funny. Both boys would make noises and the girls would get all scared. I’ve noticed Ty really is uncomfortable in new environments (anything away from home) and seems to get overwhelmed easily and he shouts a lot. A quiet Ty = happy & comfortable. A loud Ty = unhappy. I hope he gets over it and his socializing skills improve as I have no intention of staying at home all the time.
We were lucky enough to have our family photo taken. A rare opportunity! Thank you Sara!
Ty’s “deer caught in the headlights” look.
So I’ve been getting a little sad about Ty’s lack of enthusiasm for solid foods. All his baby friends enjoy eating multiple times a day so I worry about him. I know solid food isn’t THAT big of an importance so long as the baby is drinking enough breast milk or formula and Ty is thriving on BM alone so far, but still….I’d like if he enjoyed food a bit more. I guess I just got to be patient and try not to pressure the little man.
Well, today I found something he liked. Dry brown rice cereal! I was totally one of those moms who swore she’d never buy rice cereal from a can or buy baby food in a jar. Well, you know I’ve finally
pulled the stick out of my ass got sick of making food for Ty and him not even eating a tea spoon. I have a fridge full of home made okayu, fruit purees etc and I feel like it was quite a waste of time preparing everything. So I went a head and ordered this Organic Brown Rice Cereal from iherbs and guess what? He liked it!!! I made it very very soupy and I was surprise that he opened his mouth wide spoon after spoon! In total he had probably a whole table spoon which is HUGE for him! When he had enough he made it very well known but getting angry when I brought a spoon to his mouth. I am thrilled he liked! We’ll see how he likes it tomorrow.
We finally found a highchair I liked enough to buy. Man it was hard choice! I was very specific about certain things so it was super hard to find one that fit all the criterias! I’m not sure when it arrives, but I can’t wait for it!
I realize I haven’t done a 7 month update for Ty yet. I guess I feel kind of funny doing a 7 month update as its become pretty apparent to me recently that Ty is diffidently still on a 6 month schedule. I’ll come around to doing a monthly update one of these days though.
