I know I say this all the time but, I’m not a Mommy Blogger.
And then I go off and blog about my kid.
Apparently I need to make up my mind already.
Look, there’s a graphic and everything.
I like graphics almost as much as the Pete likes cheese. I’m getting ahead of myself here though.
Munchkin Meals is pretty much just what it sounds like . . . blog posts highlighting the meals our munchkins are munching on. Being a first time mom, I’ve found these pretty dang helpful. So if my Munchkin Meals post mirrors another bloggers, well, I may have stole their Munchkin Menu.
Today is supposed to be a whole day of eats, but I only have lunch pictures snapped so I’m kinda doing my own thing here. I doubt that will surprise any of you.
With all that being said, I’d like to present to you . . . Lunch in the Life of The Pete.
Lunch starts out everyday with a distraction to keep The Pete occupied while the Mama prepares the food. Things that make loud noises, like pots and pans, are crucial for my mise en place.
Once The Pete has tired of the shiny things he can be heard babbling “mama mom” to let me know he is hungry. Hanging on to his high chair is an excellent clue as well.
Up he goes. If I still need a few minutes to prepare his food, he begins his lunch course with an appetizer of puffs. Please note the double fist action. Mama doesn’t have long now.
If lunch isn’t ready by the time the puffs are gone, The Pete squeals and looks about for his food. He looks to his left.
He looks to his right.
He looks down.
The Mama comes through! Today we have an all organic feast of blueberries, cauliflower, grated cheese and sliced chicken.
The cheese is always the first to be shoveled into his tiny little mouth.
Next is the lunch meat. The fruit and vegetable are often interchangeable but for this meal he opted to demolish the cauliflower before attacking the blueberries.
If you are concerned that tray looks mighty full for such a tiny baby, have no fear. The Pete never dines alone.
The Snoops and The Destroyer lie in wait for morsels to be dropped.
That’s not exactly true. The Snoops, though short, is a go getter when it comes to potentially dropped cheese. She always makes sure to remind the Pete she is there.
The Destroyer just takes what she wants, attempting to lick any leftovers directly from The Pete’s hand. Mama is not thrilled, but the boy doesn’t seem to mind at all.
So while the tray looks way too full of food, some goes to The Snoops, some to The Destroyer and some is simply saved for later.
The meal ends as all meals should, with a little Cardio to work off the calories. Stairmaster anyone?
And that’s lunch!
P.S. He’s 9 months old
