I remember a conversation I had with my cousin a few years ago, about why parents feel the need to put pictures of their children online with food all over them. Why not clean them up before taking a picture of them? I just couldn’t understand it. Well, now that I’m a parent, I’m doing just that! I also now understand the meaning of the hashtag #sorrynotsorry, I never got the point of that before either.
I couldn’t let it go by without note, yesterday we started to attempt weaning. I did mention in my ‘Frey at 19 weeks’ update that he had had a taste of baby rice, but then he came down with a cold and wasn’t at all interested, so we gave up on that and I thought I’d wait until he was a bit older. As he will be 6 months old on the 22nd August, I thought that I couldn’t put it off much longer!
So, yesterday I got the highchair out, and prepared his first delicious meal of mashed avocado and water from the brand new sippy cup.
I think he managed a spoonful or two, and a sip of water, so I’ve labelled it ‘a good start’. Mummy finished off the avocado. Today’s menu… mashed banana!
It’s a whole new world of fun and mess!
