Happy First Father’s Day, Daddy!

I actually surprised my fiancé with an early Father’s Day before we left to come to Taiwan. I came up with the idea when I realized we would be in Taiwan for Father’s Day and Father’s Day in Taiwan is on a different day than in Canada. 

I wanted to make it special and to show my appreciation for him. I’m so fortunate to have a partner that actually is my partner in parenting. You hear about moms complain about dads all the time but I have no complaints. He’s an amazing father to our son and loves him to pieces. So, here are some pictures from that day.

He had no idea I had gone behind his back and did this. His gift was a shadowbox with his favourite sleeper of Tux’s. 

In the picture above, he’s pointing at the picture of him holding Tux when he was just born and remembering how little he was. We both can’t believe our son’s so big now.

And here’s an outtake. 

Hope all everyone had a very happy Father’s Day!

Fed Friday’s – Red Bell Peppers

This week into our journey with solids, Tux tries red bell peppers.

hmmm..this is new
I don’t know mom

We figured he should try a different coloured vegetable. We’ve been going green thus far so thought we’d try something not green. He’s starting to get the whole holding in hand and shoving into mouth thing now. 

ok. I think I like this.

What I have learned and this isn’t for everyone as everyone’s baby is different but it’s easier for him to hold the food and feed himself when it’s long and not small tiny pieces. Basically it gives him a handle to hold on to. He has teeth and not going to lie, sometimes we get scared when he shoves the whole thing in his mouth but he’s been pretty good at spitting it back out as well. We have also learned not to over steam the veggies so that it automatically disintegrates in his hands, having it a little bit tougher seems to be more enjoyable for him as he can gnaw on part of it. He hasn’t quite figured out how to deal with the part that’s in his palms. 

Food drunk

And the baby eating solids adventure continues. Next week, what will he be having in Taiwan?

In a couple weeks I will be taking my fiancé and son to Taiwan to visit my family and for my family to meet the baby. 

Keeping that in mind, my goal is to at least have one post up per week from now till I get back from Taiwan.

That being said, I have so many ideas for posts and hope that I can post more than one post a week. 

I just wanted to update you all before I seem like I dropped off the face of the earth. I’m not, just going on a trip with my family and going to enjoy my experience.

Thank you for reading!
