2:39 pm - Toddler Tips

Family Teaching Tips: Feeding Toddlers

Serve small portions, and provide a second serving when the first has been eaten. One or 2 teaspoonfuls is an adequate serving for the toddler. Too much food on the dish may overwhelm the child.
There is no one food essential to health. Allow substitution for a disliked food. Food jags where toddlers prefer one food for days on end are common and not harmful. If the child refuses a particular food such as milk, use appropriate substitutes such as pudding, cheese, yogurt, and cottage cheese. Avoid a battle of wills at mealtime.
Toddlers like simply prepared foods served warm or cool, not hot or cold.
Provide a social atmosphere at mealtimes; allow the toddler to eat with others in the family. Toddlers learn by imitating the acceptance or rejection of foods by other family members.
Toddlers prefer foods that they can pick up with their fingers; however, they should be allowed to use a spoon or fork when they want to try.
Try to plan regular mealtimes with small nutritious snacks between meals. Do not attach too much importance to food by urging the child to choose what to eat.
Dawdling at mealtime is common with this age group and can be ignored unless it stretches to unreasonable lengths or becomes a play for power. Mealtime for the toddler should not exceed 20 minutes. Calmly remove food without comment.
Do not make desserts a reward for good eating habits. It gives unfair value to the dessert and makes vegetables or other foods seem less desirable.
Offer regularly planned nutritious snacks such as milk, crackers and peanut butter, cheese cubes, and pieces of fruit. Plan snacks midway between meals and at bedtime.
Remember that the total amount eaten each day is more important than the amount eaten at a specific meal.

My husband just said "Hey sweetie, you're going to have contractions eventually."

Sigh. Yeah. But not soon enough.

8:15 pm - 33 Weeks
I can't believe that I haven't posted in, oh, something like 28 weeks. I've just kind of let it all go by very, very, very slowly. And now here I am, 4 weeks away from full term and freaking out about not having anything ready.

Okay, so I do HAVE most of what I need, but none of it is set up yet. And I feel like the small things we need still are getting in the way. Lets see -

Dresser (so Ian can move his clothes off the changing table and I can organize it)
Bins (for above mentioned organization)
Bins for bookcase organization
Leg Extenders for the co-sleeper
Diaper Covers (3 or 4 more)
KY Jelly (if this kid is anything like his father, we'll be taking his temp a lot)
MB Soap Bits (I can't order these yet! They'll melt on my porch!)
Onesie Extenders

I just ordered the second car seat, which is great but not here yet, and not installed yet. I can't install my seat until after baby, because there isn't room for it next to the two I've got now.

This is a very long complaint. Have I also mentioned I've got no idea HOW I'm going to organize the table/bookshelf to hold everything it needs to?? Blah. So I have a list of things I need, and a list of things I need to do -

~ stock up laundry supplies
~ print/post laundry instructions
~ pre-make meals
~ clean out freezer!
~ completely clean out car
~ switch sides, after attaching co-sleeper
~ attach co-sleeper!
~ organize closet
~ organize baby closet
~ clean guest room
~ organize/stock pantry

And now I'm tired just thinking about it. On the plus, have I mentioned so far it's been a really awesome pregnancy?

Cat's out of the bag. I don't want to wait cautiously. I'm happy, Ian's happy, we want our friends and family to be happy, so here we are, sharing slowly with the world.

9:00 pm - Smell the pages, why don't you.

This is it... a brand spanking new journal. It's been forever since I started one. I almost didn't, but the name came to me while sitting at work and here we are. 

It's friends only, obviously. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. Leave me a comment and I'll be sure to respond in kind.
