He Wasn’t So Sure

With most everything, I have been a more relaxed Mom the third time around. I don’t have the hyper-need to do everything early. I figure he will tell me when he is ready and so far that has worked. And if anything he is making his goals early on his own. On food though…I learned to not press that issue with my first son, Ford. Ford had issues with textures (most likely due to his being an Aspie baby). Ford didn’t eat much in solids till he was a year old and even then it was a battle. Walker on the other hand wanted to eat as soon as he could but I held off till around 6 months – the longer their tummies can mature, the better. With Alistaire, I held off till he was 6 months old, I watched for his cues. His eyes would follow Walker, he was drooling while Walker nibbled in front of him. He was ready!

 

“Don’t mess with me, I have a big brother” ;-)

 

 

On the other hand…he wasn’t so sure after his first bite:

 

 

I had to love his face -

 

 

Maybe not so bad after all? And he is getting hair finally! And it is so light in color….I am squealing over it.

 

 

A full belly and a happy baby? Yes!

 

 

Lest us forget about Walker – he has been adding so many new words lately! It is a joy to listen to him :-)

  1. Walker’s t-shirt is awesome beyond words. I love it!
    I also believe in being (trying anyway) more relaxed about stuff. Even though it didn’t work with Knox, I believe in the baby led approach. Granted, Knox had special considerations and no approach worked with him but I would do the same as you do in the unlikely event I have another. And that face, I love it – Alistaire is a very cool little man.

    • Ford’s eating issues definitely came from his Autism…but you know he did do it eventually. It just took a lot longer to get there – a LOT longer….sigh! But there is hope out there for parents :-)
      Kirk found that shirt at the Gymboree outlet store, I love finding deals there!
