Happy What I Ate Wednesday, my friends! How is your week going so far? The weather has been pretty perfect here so I’m a happy momma.
Today I thought it would be fun to share a day of eats for both myself and Ryan. I used to do this every week back when I started doing WIAW’s (You can see them all on the baby led weaning page – Ryan was so tiny!!) but I haven’t done it for a while (except when I did that day in the life post – must do again!) So today I’m going to share all of our eats from Monday!
Me – coffee, nuts, cheese. I’m usually not too hungry in the morning and sometimes if I eat too early I get stomach pains, so I try to keep it small.
Ryan – 2 eggs with ketchup, cheddar cheese, tomatoes and PB apples. (the cheese was originally just in the eggs, but toddlers will be toddlers.
Me – half of a leftover burger from Saturday fried up with some onion. (unpictured, but trust me, you’re welcome. ugly town.)
Ryan – Strawberry banana smoothie with Alex. I didn’t grab a picture because the kid moves like lightening, but I promise you it looked a little neater than this smoothie experience.
Me – I was taking pictures for yesterday’s post so I had the leftovers – spinach feta egg nest.
Ryan – PB&J toast, tomatoes with balsamic, feta cheese, and a lot of frozen blueberries. He was super hot from the park and playing outside, so I figured they would help.
Me – Another coffee (oops) and some more nuts. (with a side of nakey baby because he spit up all over himself. Mom of the year.
Ryan – He napped really (really) late so just raisins and bread while I was making us dinner.
Me – 2 mini burgers and 1 chicken thigh over greens plus grilled onion and yellow squash.
Ryan – 1 mini burger, half of a chicken thigh (ketchup added later.) grilled squash, sweet potatoes, tomatoes and mozzarella. Long story short, I pulled all the stops out trying to get him to eat in his highchair (trucks and multiple water bottles on the tray..) but he threw a huge fit. I let him out, letting him know he wasn’t getting anything different and he ran to play. Then he ran back and tried to eat my dinner. (#momlife, for real) So I started to hand him his, and he ate out of my lap. BUT he ate, and he ate the original dinner I gave him, so win, right? RIGHT!?!?
A seemingly never ending stream of unpictured snacks – tomatoes, nuts, a spoonful of almond butter, a cheese stick… This diet makes me so hungry plus Owen is going through a lot of nursing and a sleep regression sooooo…
And that’s it! So tell me – moms, any tips for getting kiddos to eat sitting in their chair/at the table? Eat any snack that are kind of strange? Let me know in the comments!
