These various bits of burger buns left over from dinner are destined to be my snack. Or I might trade them in for a brownie…since the brownies are getting old and all…
But it’s a bit funny that today’s picture is “snack” and I’ve been thinking a lot about snacks lately! I’ve been pretty dissatisfied with my body since Theo was born, and over the past couple of months I put on a few of the pounds I had lost, so I decided to start being a bit more mindful about my snacking and portion sizes.
And while I’ve been paring down (you know, from 8 brownies a day to 4…), Theo needs some bulking up! He was born at over 9 pounds, but has since become a skinny, skinny boy (with a large, round, lollipop head). The health visitor came by today, and she had some suggestions for us. Basically, we’re night weaning, and only nursing 3 times a day, with 3 real meals and 2-3 snacks in between. And suddenly it feels like, if Theo’s not eating, I’m busy making food for his next little mealtime. But we’ll try it for a while, and see what happens! We’re also adding extra fat to…well, basically everything.
To be honest, I’m not all that worried. He’s a skinny little man, but he’s getting so active, curious, and really interactive that I know he’s getting what’s most important.
But who doesn’t want a little chub on their baby?
