Year 2 Day 280: Pancake Face!
Guess who tried pancakes for the first time today?! It was nice because they were small enough to just give him a whole pancake, but unfortunately they made quite a mess. Once he would get a whole pancake broken into smaller crumbs he would then pick those bits back off his tray with one hand and place them back into his mouth before chewing away. I don't even think he gagged once this time, which is a first.
I have to hand it to the little guy, he's getting to be pretty accurate with his aim, too -- even when handling a spoon. He's taking this whole eating thing pretty seriously at only 6.5 months!
We did have the telly on during his little feast, which isn't typical since we're usually outside or sitting at a table, but he had a rough day so I had to put on some 'Get Squiggling' to serve as a distraction while I got the pancakes. Here you can see that something clearly dramatic and suspenseful has happened on this children's cartoon.
But alas. Squiglet has saved the day with his squiggle-pad and squiggle-sticks it seems and all is well again in the world -- just look at the relief on Ryan's face (right next to the crumbs of pancake). Whew! Thank goodness for that!
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!
