A Day in the Life of Masher’s Stomach, Take Two

18 05 2009

Masher may have the beginnings of a cold today, so he wasn’t a big eater.  He nursed as usual as soon as he woke up around 6:30 a.m. and then …

  • 8 a.m. — He didn’t respond to my asking if he was hungry until pretty late in the morning … when I started making pancakes.  Actually I first offered him a bowl of big ol’ fresh blueberries and diced pear, which he totally turned his nose up at, so I threw them into the pancake batter along with some finely chopped walnuts.  Whoa.  These were the best pancakes ever.  Didn’t even hardly need maple syrup.
  • As soon as Masher was done with one pancake he was ready to get down … until he spotted the bananas, which I have to keep hidden because otherwise he’d only eat bananas for every meal!  So, he ate a banana.
  • 1 p.m. — Poor lil’ guy decided to nap early, so he was up early too.  He ate another pancake while watching some lacrosse with Daddy, then polished off a half-cup or so of some homemade, very garlicky, chickpea dip with some low-salt Triscuits.
  • 3 p.m. — Masher sat down to eat about a cup of plain yogurt … hard to say exactly how much since he insists on feeding himself these days, and a lot of yogurt ends up ON him.
  • 5 p.m. — We left the babysitter green beans, cheese, and toast to feed Masher.  Apparently he ate all of the cheese and toast, none of the green beans, which he used to polish off in a frenzy.  Hmmmm … going to have to work on these tomorrow …
