Today I realized (again) that I am not the mother of the year when it comes to “introducing solid foods”.
Five days from now, we will step in to a different world. No more isolation. I might even meet up with other mothers and their babies. And the question will come up: what and how does Zoárd eat.
Like a dog… I put food from my plate in to his mouth while he is standing next to me.
How sweet: father and son tea time? No. Our son is waiting for the left-overs.
The situation is not as bad as I make it sound. I hope. But I need to go towards more traditional ways of offering food to our little one.
Since we live in a hotel room, you can guess that in our room, we do not have a high chair and a lovely, round, family table to sit down to. Zoárd can either sit on the floor or stand.
He was playing with his rocker when I surprised him with a bib and some fresh mango.
It is not like we are banned from the restaurant of the hotel. We have lunch there every day.
Zoárd loves the restaurant but he is not used to sitting in a high chair for long.
And lunch time is not his favorite time of the day to be tasting new flavors. But in this picture I popped some fresh coconut in his mouth and he was very thrilled about it. Stop judging me, he is a baby. This is his happy face. HAHA
I think we can put a check mark next to “showing the restaurant”. And now you already know what I am trying to improve in the future.
Here we are with proper pureed food, which I am spoon feeding Zoárd.
The chefs who cook for us are Hungarian. If you were wondering. There are four of them and I have a list in my room to help me order my food. I am a picky eater and I figured out that these four guys have different strengths.
All of them can make me a ratatouille with rice noodles but only one of them puts his heart in it. Oh if they would know my little rating system… HAHA
The head chef always makes me my noodle with parmesan and buffalo mozzarella cheese. Tomatoes are a must in all meals of mine.
Exceptions do exist. Strictly on Sundays. (I only eat sweets on Sundays.)
Do you have a favorite snack?
