1) Colin has begun to refuse baby food purees. He still happily eats yogurt off a spoon so I don't think it is the idea of being feed that bothers him, seems to be he is bored with that texture. So now I have to get way more creative with what I feed him. Everyone says just feed him what you would eat. Anyone who knows what I eat would never offer this advice. I've gotten a lot better recently but lunch is still a pretty consistent rotation of mac and cheese, grilled cheese and cold cuts. So aside from cold cuts that is what Colin eats too. We tried pasta with red sauce last night and he seemed to enjoy that and this morning he finally ate a toaster waffle (banana waffles of all things!) so that adds a few more possibilities. I'm thinking about making him humus for lunch we'll see how that goes. Any other suggestions for kid friendly healthy meals are appreciated!
2) My wonderful napping routine is in flux. Serious bummer. The tricky part is that Colin does not seem to have any desire to move his morning nap (probably because he isn't sleeping through the night yet) and this nap has been growing lately, from his typical 70 mins to nearly 3hours one day. This obviously shifts nap #2 later (usually 330-5) which shifts bedtime to 9. I'm going to try to push is morning nap as far out as I can but for the next few weeks things are going to get messy. My biggest concern is for the days he only takes a 40 min nap I will no longer have a second nap to make up the difference and will just have a cranky kid all day.
3) I would now consider Colin officially walking (as of last Sunday). He now walks a lot but is still fairly unstable. I wouldn't put him down outside the house and just let him go, but we are close to that. Soon he will be walking around on his own instead of having to be carried, which couldn't come at a better time because he is getting heavy.
