Last weekend was probably one of the best weekends we’ve had as a family in quite a while. Well at least that’s the way I feel about it anyways.
Not that we did anything out of the ordinary or went to places other than those we normally do, but yeah, it was how a weekend should, in my opinion, always be.
After bathing Luqman and letting him nap for a bit, we decided to go out to Alamanda. Had to get some groceries and I was itching to bake, so I just HAD to get some butter and flour.
Of course since we were all hungry, we grabbed some lunch at Nando’s as well.
I think Luqman behaved exceptionally well last weekend; sat all the way from home to Alamanda in his car seat (notwithstanding tears and screams and all), sat quietly in his high chair while we had lunch and also actually ate his lunch with much gusto since he’s now regained his appetite after he cut his first molar.
Ever since he turned 18 months, I’ve become more comfortable feeding him store bought food that we eat as our own meals. Previously, I would bring homemade food for him like pasta and rice balls, but now that he’s older, it has become tougher to feed him. It’s not so much because he’s a picky eater, but more because he wants to eat our food and demands his independence i.e. wants to feed himself, so things like porridge, rice and pasta are really just not practical at all.
So, since Nando’s is relatively healthy, I decided it should be alright to order him some Peri Wedges, which he of course, LOVED!
Anyways, since my piece of chicken was kind of big, I cut it into 2 and left my chicken drumstick on the left side of my plate.
Guess who cheekily, albeit ever so nonchalantly took it OFF my plate like it was meant for him?
Yes, this Cheekypuff, that’s who!
I was SO shocked, but at the same time amused by this! And I’m so glad that I wasn’t too gob smacked to snap a photo. Heee. By the way, I had every intention to actually EAT the chicken drumstick okay!
But hey, that’s not the end of the Boy’s cheekiness, alright!
|Imma just chillin with my Upin, Ma.|
Lookie here what he was up to when we were having dessert at Starbucks?
Gosh, don’t you just think that these kids grow up just wayyyy too fast.
I can’t believe that he was once this helpless lil’ baby who didn’t know anything but cry, smile and poop just about a year plus ago!
It’s becoming harder and harder not to miss him these days, especially now when I’m worried sick about how he’s doing in school.
And today I miss him ever so much, so very obviously.
*Oh, by the way, please do give me ideas any Mommies out there about healthy finger foods that you feed your toddlers. So far, I've made some steamed potato fries, meatballs and chicken nuggets.These are winners with Luqman but I wish I could incorporate more vege and also rice in his diet, while letting him have his independence while eating. Pretty please and thank you!*
