Henry was such a cranky pants today. I had a hard time getting him to cooperate for anything. I’m hoping he’s not getting sick and was just having an off day. Chris thinks it’s Henry’s subtle way of saying we’re spending too much time together and that maybe daddy should have the rest of the parental leave…. Nice try Chris.
Despite being cranky, I forged ahead with Sandra and Luis for our first play date in a long time. Summer just kind of messed up our schedules a bit but we’re somewhat back on track for playing. The boys are getting bigger. It’s neat seeing them interact more. And by interact, I mean try and gouge each others eyes out lovingly. Seriously, what is it with babies that they want to poke and bite other babies in a non angry way. Henry kept trying to rip Luis’ hair out while Luis (who has two bottom teeth) was trying to bite Henry’s hand.The whole time they were trying to beat each other up, they were chatty and giggly.
Our play date was slightly interrupted by an appointment I had booked to have our piano tuned. The boys were mesmerized by the piano tuner has he played around with the piano.
The car seat I ordered arrived yesterday and it’s massive. I really really hope it fits in our car.
I’ve been contemplating the notion of Baby Led Weaning. Baby Led Weaning just means letting your child feed themselves from the very start of weaning. You don’t use purees or jars, just normal food that you would eat, except cooked appropriately for a baby. Henry has almost zero interest in eating his purees. He’ll eat some from time to time but he’s not invested in the whole process. However whenever Chris and I are eating, he’s always reaching for our food. Has anyone ever tried this method? Does it work well? I’m so worried about choking issues but the method seems to state that choking isn’t a concern. I’d love to hear how people out there got their babies to eat solids.
