Feeling better Lily

Lily and I just took it easy yesterday.

In the morning, instead of going to the park, we stayed home, watched YoGabbaGabba, read books and played with her toys.

She didn’t have much of an appetite all day.

I hate seeing her not eat.

The only thing she wanted was grapes.

Even though her temperature was back to normal (I took it every hour), she was still not 100%.

Later in the afternoon, again instead of going to the park, we went for a bike ride because I wanted her to get some fresh air.

I treated her to some vanilla ice cream.

I wanted her to eat something other than grapes!

She had some oatmeal for dinner and went to bed at her regular time.

She woke up several times during the night and her temperature was almost 100 again this morning.

We will see what today brings.

Maybe no library. 🙁

Meals

Lily is eating pretty much everything nowadays.

Sometimes it’s just hard trying to figure out what exactly to feed her.

She eats 4 full meals every day.

BREAKFAST. She usually has oatmeal with milk, banana, cinnamon and honey with some fresh fruit (usually grapes) on the side. Sometimes instead of oatmeal, she will have a 1 egg omelet, some toast and fresh fruit.

LUNCH. Noodles with olive oil and parmesan cheese, mac and cheese, grilled cheese, soups, cheese and turkey sandwich, sweet potatoes and other veggies, etc. And then of course, fresh fruit on the side.

AFTERNOON LUNCH/SNACK. Either a waffle with butter and a drizzle of syrup with fruit or yogurt with fruit.

DINNER. Most of the time it’s just like lunch. Noodles, soups, veggies, etc

SNACKS. Raisins, baked apples and fruit.

How many meals do your little ones eat?

What do you usually feed them?

I’m always looking for new ideas. 🙂

Gyro Bowl

Have any of you heard of the Gyro Bowl? (no, it’s not a Greek dish 😉 )

Aunt Maury gave Lily one and guess what?

It totally works!

I had seen an infomercial for it a while ago but, you know how those infomercials are…

I mean, it looked pretty cool but I didn’t believe that it wouldn’t spill.

Well, it is one of the best kid inventions I have seen.

Grapes, animal crackers, oranges, cheerios, whatever, nothing spills.

Lily loves it and so do I!

Thanks aunt Maury!
