Year 2 Day 246: Lunch...Alfresco
The haze outside cleared up a bit this afternoon so I decided to take advantage and I prepared lunch for Ryan and myself to take outside on the patio. My menu consisted of turkey & salad sandwiches and a banana. And since Baby-Led Weaning is all about offering the same thing that you might be eating Ryan had some cucumber sticks, tomato wedges and half a banana (with the skin left on the bottom for him to hold it). He was very much a fan of the banana!
I must say that BLW has been pretty enjoyable thus far. It's nice that I don't have to be too concerned about if he is consuming enough. Since he is breastfed anyway, up to this point I have just accepted that he eats when he is hungry and that will carry through with solids as well, once he starts getting the hang of it all. Plus, it's not like his milk feeds are being replaced BY this food, they simply compliment it and he carries on breastfeeding as he has done, gradually weaning himself off the more solids he chooses to consume. Ultimately I know that if he is filling nappies and thriving, all is right in his world when it comes to getting enough to eat.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
