The times they are a-changin'
He's growing up.
Now six and a half months. Cannot believe it. And it's now time to start introducing food.
I borrowed this book from the local library and I think I'll buy it - Organic Baby and Toddler Cookbook. It's very good, with lots of tempting little dishes.
I've also had to buy bibs, bowls, spoons...
The 'Bunnykins' bowl was actually Robert's. It's nice that his son will eat from the same one.
And this morning Mr S had his first meal of organic rice cereal. He's currently in my arms sleeping off the effects [note: I started drafting this post over a week ago (27 April), just as Mil was becoming ill. I haven't had time to finish it til now. Since writing about the rice cereal we have also tried yoghurt and stewed fruit. All with great success.]
Mr S is wearing a Debbie Bliss jumper knitted with Marta's Yarn hand dyed 2ply used with 4 strands.
The high chair is a recent purchase. I really wanted the Stokke chair, but practical considerations won out. Apart from feeding, I need to use the chair to keep Mr S close to me while I cook, clean and shower too. So I needed one with wheels that can be moved easily from room to room. The one I chose also has a basket for storing bibs and toys and a table for playing on. I can lower it and remove the tray to sit him at the table to eat. The seat also has three positions (upright and two semi reclining positions), which is good at the moment when Mr S cannot sit for a long time. It's a Steelcraft. I'm pretty sure that my highchair was a Steelcraft too, which is a nice bit of symmetry.
Mil Update: She's looking much better. The specialist vet from Glen Waverly gave me a follow up call today. We are still in monitoring mode.
