my teenage mutant ninja turtles placemat

teenage mutant ninja turtles, my favorite things

it has been awhile since we have thrown my old lightning mcqueen placemat away because it was already old + tattered. mum was not able to find a replacement until we visited the mall a couple of weeks back. we saw this cool teenage mutant ninja turtles + i really liked it. good thing mum agreed to buy it for me. it sells for php89 at the landmark department store.

it is now my favorite pal whenever i eat + it sure makes eating more fun + enjoyable! hopefully mum will agree to get the teenage mutant ninja turtles fork + spoon set next time around!  :Pleasure:

do you have a cute placemat, too? what sort of design are you using at the moment?

on eating my solids

solid food, toddler eating

i had quite a struggle with solid feeding for awhile. i am simply so attached to my bottle i do not want to take anything else, especially the hard, non-solid ones – they create a very unpleasant feeling in my throat whenever i take a bite. or sometimes, the alien taste is so unwelcome in my tongue i’d prefer to throw them up!

those were the days, now, mum is simply delighted i take a bite of every food she offers. i now practically eat everything that is served to me, including fish, rice, soup (which is my true love), veggies, fries + others. last saturday mum was all ears when i grabbed a bite of the chicken nugget she gave me. the grown ups had takeaways from mcdonalds for dinner, my tito + tita had burgers + fries, while mum had chicken nuggets + fries. of course, i was not able to finish one whole piece but as long as i am munching on my solids my mum is a happy mum.

i’d probably have to be weaning when i turn 2. mum read somewhere that babies who took to the bottle longer that usual are prone to cavities + tooth decay + i surely do not want that to happen to my pearly whites. but mum also thinks there will be more time to enjoy solids when i am a bit bigger, so she’s just letting me enjoy my bottle for now.besides, i so love my milk it will be hard work to totally say goodbye. well, i guess we’ll see in a few weeks 😉
