Good morning, friends! Now that I’m starting to feel a bit better, I’m ready to think (and talk) a bit more about food again. Food has not been my friend these last few months, but I’m happy that is slowly starting to change. My kids have been happy to reap the benefits of my lack of appetite – many bagel breakfasts and pancake dinners. But I like to think that on a typical day, we are lucky that they are pretty diverse and healthy eaters.
I thought it would be fun to talk a bit about what they are eating (and not eating!) these days now that they are older. What use to be days filled with plenty of time to plan, think, and prepare for every little snack, smoothie, or meal is now a rush of breakfast on the table by 6:30am, packed lunches for school, and dinner squeezed between activities, work schedules, and early bedtime. I’m sure so many of you can relate!
Now that we are expecting, it’s also time for me to start thinking about feeding a baby again. I remember so SO little about the baby stuff, and I definitely don’t remember all the specifics regarding first introductions to solid food. I know some people can’t wait, but we weren’t in a rush to start solids for either of our boys. I never got caught up in all the labeled “feeding strategies” and things that people are into these days. We just did a mix of soft foods, purees, and yes – canned baby food, as we introduced things bit by bit and figured it out ourselves as new parents.
OMG CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW CUTE BABY CULLEN WAS? The bigger my boys get the more their baby pictures just kill me. Sigh.
