January 2013 Chit Chat - Page 25post #481 of 5241/30/13 at 10:24pmOh Sara I agree it seems like Eli wants to eat every 10 minutes too ... *sigh* ... And a lot of whining if he doesn't get anything. I give Eli food in a bowl, if it is lunch/dinner - he feeds himself with a spoon, he does a great job actually, i am super impressed. My not so favourite snack is yogurt... Oi... Yogurt is EVERYWHERE when he is done because it is the one thing where he uses his spoon and entire hands :0 messy messy. Food like egg or fruits, or any snacks I space out on his tray - if I give him snacks in a bowl or a pile on his high chair tray, he grabs hands full and stuffs it in his mouth and the spits and splutters ...Sponsored Linkspost #482 of 5241/31/13 at 5:43ampost #483 of 5241/31/13 at 5:44ampost #484 of 5241/31/13 at 6:03am
A also wants to eat every five seconds, and loves dried fruit, especially currants and raisins!
If she sees you drinking or eating ANYTHING at all, she will not rest until she gets a taste of it. So people have to hide away somewhere if they dare to enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine... ;)
The good news is, this has made our diets a lot healthier! Knowing that anything I eat, I might have to share with A (where "share" sometimes means "give her the majority of it") is a very good incentive to stay away from junk.post #485 of 5241/31/13 at 6:21amSonja, Shay doesn't fuss if I don't help him, he simply helps himself. The boy hasn't yet met a package that stopped him.
Amanda, if feel like I still need ideas, too. We have dried figs, mangos, apricots, cranberries, raisins, strawberries, fruit leather ends and pieces (trader joe's), granola bars, sunflower seeds, trail mix, snap pea crisps, canned fruit cocktail and puffs. There are usually cashews and pecans but we are out. I've also been making a lot of green smoothies and Shay will find a baby food jar and bring it to me to ask for a smoothie. I drilled a hole in a lid and stuck a straw through to replace those squeezy pouches he loves so much.post #486 of 5241/31/13 at 7:04amThanks. Funny picture. Jasper knows that if he slams the puff container on the ground it will open and spill. When he gets in the pantry, the dog is right there with him. I'll find them both sitting on the ground having a snack.post #487 of 5241/31/13 at 7:30amI thought lids were supposed to be baby proof. Shay will pry kids off with his teeth, smack the side of them until they unscrew. Know what happens if you body slam a bag of chips? You get chips!post #488 of 5241/31/13 at 8:14ampost #489 of 5241/31/13 at 8:19amQuote:
The ONLY baby proof item I have ever bought that worked is the clip for the cupboards- where you run a tether through both handles and they clip together in the middle.post #490 of 5241/31/13 at 8:44ampost #491 of 5241/31/13 at 8:47ampost #492 of 5241/31/13 at 9:29amThread Starterpost #493 of 5241/31/13 at 9:52am
Off topic, sorry. Just thought I'd share. I got a phishing scam email today and thought I'd put this up just in case you didn't know some of the ways to tell if it's real or fake.
Well, it's not really showing up that big, so I'll put a link up from my page. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=403803986378166&set=a.222333661191867.52349.210696489022251&type=1&theater¬if_t=likepost #494 of 5241/31/13 at 9:56amThread StarterQuote:
This is awesome! Today Avery did his little shiver that I know means pee and then walked over to his potty and started babbling to me about it. Then at lunch I heard him talking to himself while eating... it sounded like "did it. poop. did it. poop." I asked him "poop?" and he said "poop!" So I took him to the potty and sure enough, he needed to poop! Probably an anomaly, but it was cool!post #495 of 5241/31/13 at 11:30amSelf feeding with a spoon and fork ~. We recently started to offer a spoon and fork when eating dinner. I want to say the older kids weren't pros at using then til age 2 or later.
Talking~ Harlan still hardly has a lot of words. The dr said it was okay because he's said at least 3 words. But honestly on a daily basis I only hear him say what sounds like this/that sometimes. He says hi dad/daddy. He rarely says mama. I'm slightly worried about it since my bigger kids have speech issues.
Harlan is doing he's getting over a upper respitory tract infection and a middle ear infection.post #496 of 5241/31/13 at 12:00pmCoralie eats with a bowl. She feeds her food to the dog, but doesn't dump the bowl over. I'd say most kids can't eat soup with a spoon until 2-3yo, even if they use a spoon for other foods.
Joanie, none of my kids have eaten salad until age 3 or so. Lettuce can be hard for kids to chew and gets stuck in the mouth. All my kids are good eaters and eat tons of other veggies. Maybe just offer 1-2 kinds of raw veggies that aren't lettuce and go from there.post #497 of 5241/31/13 at 1:13pmThread StarterQuote:
I think that illness plays a big role in development at this age. Kids dealing with ear infections might have a hard time hearing for periods of time, causing them to not develop words as quickly or as early. Plus they have to put their energy into healing themselves instead of learning during those times. But, I really wouldn't worry for quite some time... most kids catch up and out grow speech issues and delays by age 4.post #498 of 5241/31/13 at 1:16pmThread StarterQuote:
That salad had oil and vinegar with garlic salt, onion salt, and ground marjoram... my staple salad dressing. But Abra's right, lettuce is a challenge to eat. You can try crunchier lettuce like the bottoms of Romaine heads to get her started.post #499 of 5241/31/13 at 3:48pmpost #500 of 5241/31/13 at 4:39pm
Thanks Becky, I had gotten something like that from 'paypal' around middle last year - the biggest tell is that they use 'Customer' instead of your actual name. The real ones from Paypal use your name.
Sara, our accessible cupboards only have pots/pans in them, potatoes/yams etc. Eli carries the veggies around - and when the fridge is open he carries anything that is in it, around the house. I find things in random places :) I do have a snack container that I stash in the stroller and Eli usually brings it out to me when he finds it - I love it, it is such a great container! But mostly he just whines when he is hungry and says EA EA EA (for eat) ... and anything we eat is fair game. He whines until he gets a bite, and by bite I mean he needs the entire thing lol :) He loves drinking things too...
(Munchkin snack tower)
Snack ideas are always welcome. I find though that raisins go in and out undigested. He doesn't have many teeth so he doesn't seem to chew the raisins. I saw a really neat thing on Pinterest about making your own fruit jellies. I am thinking of making them to have as snacks too. Eli has tried cheese puffs (Barbara's kind) and finally figured out how to eat them without shoving the entire thing in his mouth ;) I love freeze dried yogurt drops, they are great! I will try more dried fruits... Gotta help the poor child who seems like he is always hungry.
