Well today has been manic, we are going on holiday to Cyprus on Saturday and packing is a nightmare. I know I'm taking too much but i feel like i need it all, if i could pack up my house and ship it over with us i would!!
For breakfast Laurie had mini weetabix again but i spread some mashed banana on each one before tipping the milk over this time, he couldn't shovel it in fast enough. He also had some of my toast, he's getting better with toast, before he would just suck the butter off and chuck it on the floor but now he rips chunks off chews it up and then spits it on the floor, to me this is progress!!
Lunch was a meatloaf i made before and froze in slices, it's made from an Annabel Karmel recipe, lean mince, grated carrot, grated apple, onion, dried thyme and home made BBQ sauce to moisten it up, this was served with broccoli. I decided to try out yesterdays idea and i cut it into smaller pieces for him, he still spat bits back out but i think more was eaten, the broccoli was demolished, he loves broccoli but it's a bugger to clean up sometimes, he makes such a mess with it it's impossible to see how much he's eaten until the dreaded nappy.
For dinner i roasted a chicken, carrots, red onion and some spuds. He gave the chicken a good chew, most bits that came out were definitely more mushed, he sucked the potato and left behind the crispy skin, he didn't touch the roasted red onion so I've saved that and the carrot for tomorrow, after dinner i gave him preloaded spoons of fromage frais.
So far Amelie has refused to eat her dinner, I'm waiting for Daddy to come home so he can encourage her to eat with him, hopefully she will be hungrier by then so might attempt it. Probably not.
