Sorry for the lack of posting. Things have been crazy with work. For those that don’t know I am a public school teacher (the budget cuts are a huge stress), but I’m also working toward my masters at night. So that means two nights a week I don’t get home until after 8:30 pm. After I get home I’m totally exhausted and it’s all I can do to muster up the energy to play with Mason (when he’s awake to see me.)
This past weekend we took Mason out for pizza. When the food came I cut a bunch of bite-sized pieces for him to eat. I put them in front of him and he proceeded to throw them on the floor one by one. Frustrated I just gave him the rest of the slice figuring maybe he would play with it but at least it would occupy him long enough I could eat my food.
Little did I know I was embarking on quite the discovery and it was a thing of beauty.
He ate the ENTIRE slice. I gave him another slice about the same size (maybe 2/3 of the slice) and he ate that one! Clearly he didn’t want small baby bites; he wanted a slice that looked more like what we were eating. I plan on testing this theory with a sandwich to see if he’ll eat it if I give him a more substantial piece. My only concern is that it be big enough so it won’t be a chocking hazard but not so small he won’t eat it. Any suggestions on things I can try to feed him??
Here is a terrible picture of Mason (it was taken from my phone) eating his first muffin…of course he wanted to hold and eat the entire thing. Why was I so surprised about him wanting the entire slice of pizza??
