Public Enemy Number One

My darling baby will eat any vegetable I offer. He doesn't always eat much of them, but he is always a trooper and tries them. He has had everything from squash to peas to broccoli and everything in between.

No, veggies are not our problem, our problem comes in the sweet counterpart to veggies. Fruit of any kind. Every bite of fruit I give Brody makes him gag. And I'm not talking little gags, I mean full fledged eyes watering, saliva pouring choking on this atrocity gagging.

I love fruit and had high hopes Brody would take after me I'm that aspect. I was so excited for him to start fruits because I just knew he would love them! I mean they're sweet, who doesn't. I am trucking on though, and checking each age appropriate fruit of the list. We are trying mango tonight, wish us luck! Any tips on introducing fruit, fruit hate, mommy tricks are much appreciated!

What foods do your kids despise?

Must Have Monday!

Sorry I've been a little MIA; life has been crazy between work, the holidays, and sleep training (more on that later :)) Anywho, I'm back! And it's time for da da dada...MUST HAVE MONDAY! This week, my mommy must have is my Moby. Here's what the manufacturer says...

"Soft, comfortable and supportive, the Moby Wrap Baby Carrier - Black makes use of your back and shoulders to support the weight of your little one. This innovative carrier is designed for parents who are looking to keep baby close for the additional warmth, security, bonding time and other benefits that close contact can confer. This wide piece of washable cotton fabric is soft and cozy enough for an infant and designed without buckles, snaps, fasteners or other elements that might irritate mom and dad. When properly wrapped around the adult's upper body, it provides a safe, stable and intimate way to carry baby and stay active."


This thing has been a lifesaver. I originally purchased it when I was on maternity leave and after a few weeks needed to figure out how to get things done around the house with this sweet baby. It is so soft, and when wrapped correctly, so cozy for the baby! Brody would get in and fall almost instantly asleep. He liked to be swaddled, so this was the ultimate comfort for him. I'm still using it at seven months for trips to the grocery store, or shopping. It is totally secure, and once I got used to it, I feel totally secure with Brody being in it. The only con for this product, is it does take some getting used to while trying to learn to tie it appropriately. I love the Moby and am sure it will only get better when baby number two comes along and I'm running out of hands!
