Food Rut

When we started out with the whole solid food thing, L did not have any interest.  Milk was his favorite and thats all he wanted which was fine, I didn't want to make meals a bad association so I offered food often but if he refused I didn't push it.

Finally around 8 months he decided he liked food but really only liked very few baby foods, so I decided to just start offering the food we were eating.  He ended up loving regular food and now he basically just eats what we eat.  I am actually kind of amazed at what he eats and I know as he gets more into the throws of toddlerhood things can change daily but I have yet to offer him anything he won't eat.

The problem is, aside from dinner we don't really eat a whole lot and I know he needs to eat more but I just feel like I feed him all the same things and I don't want him eating mac and cheese and chicken nuggets every day.  I know he needs more fruits and veggies and right now he likes those squeeze pack things of fruit and veggies because he likes to hold them and squeeze them but he can't eat those forever.

At breakfast he usually has oatmeal, greek yogurt, waffles, or banana.  The real issue is lunch.  I just never know what to feed him because I don't really eat lunch. Also on nights when I work and hubby gets home late sometimes I just don't have time to make dinner and then I'm scrounging the cabinets for something to throw together for him.

What do you feed your toddlers? I just need some new ideas!

Fathers Day 2012

Happy Fathers Day to all the daddies out there!

More specifically to my hubby, he has been such a fantastic father to L.  I love to watch him play and teach L all kinds of things.  He loves to take him out on days I have to work just so they can stroll Home Depot or go to the park.  He loves rough housing with him and teaching him all kinds of dangerous boy things like throwing yourself off the couch into daddy's arms.

He's always so concerned about his health and safety when he was a little baby he was afraid to let him play with the alphabet links on his play mat because he was afraid his arms would get stuck in them (which would be completely impossible) Its so sweet to see how upset he gets when L hits his head or falls over.

He loves to take the boy shopping.  Im pretty sure he wouldn't have half the style he has if it weren't for his daddy and his love for buying him "look alike" clothes.

It warms my heart to see them together and I can't wait for the years to come as L gets older and involved in sports and things that the hubby is passionate about, and seeing him pass on that passion to his son.  He has far surpassed my expectations and the father I imagined he's be!!

Beach Bums

This past weekend our little family took a trip to Galveston just for the afternoon.  We left around 1230 and it is only about an hour or so drive.  We wanted to check out the new Pleasure Pier that they built which honestly left much to be desired.  It was over priced to get in and there wasn't much there.  We had to pay about $10 per person to get in and not ride rides.  It only took us about 10 minutes to walk through and then we were done.  We decided to get a funnel cake at least to make our time there worth while.  I will say though it made for some very interesting people watching.  If L was older he may have enjoyed some of the rides but I don't know, maybe once they completely finish the pier it may be better, but for now we won't be back there.

wanna be Pauly D?

 After the Pier we just headed to the beach to hang out for a few hours.  Galveston is a pretty ugly beach but the sand was soft and we sat far enough out that there was no seaweed.  We did go in the water some even though its ugly and full of seaweed.  It was warm and L liked jumping in the waves.

 Getting buried, and not so sure about it

 Playing in the sand

Hi mom!!

Probably seeing some interesting people 

After we played for a bit we went to eat at a place called Casey's I think.  I got fish tacos and they were so so good! Then we took our sandy selves home and got back just in time for L to take a bath and make it to bed on time... He was pretty wiped out!!

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
