a portrait of my son, once a week, every week in 2015

Jimmy: Pasta! Cheese! Vroom!

Yes... I have resorted to making car noises to get Jimmy's attention so that he will eat most, if not all, his breakfast, lunch, and dinner... It's not that Jimmy doesn't like his food - he loves it - it's just that lately he gets to a point in the meal where he stops eating but is happy to be fed. This usually happens around the time when Michael has finished his meal. Once upon a time I would have just let Jimmy play with his food and that would be that, but he needs more than breastmilk and I am encouraging Jimmy to eat more solids in the hope that he will rely less and less on breastmilk during the day (so days this works better than others). So, vroom!

If you hadn't already guessed, Michael took this photo while I was feeding Jimmy his lunch. Jimmy had already fed himself quite a bit of the pasta, although some of it made it to his ear before it found its way into his mouth...


  1. I think all parents resort to similar tactics...

    1. We now have to make different noises... He actually requests them... And sometimes he even makes them while feeding himself.
