It has begun.
|"What's this?" [25June2012]|
At first, I was finding it all to be way too daunting and was going to postpone the First Weaning Experience til the following day. I changed my mind a few moments later though as I was way too excited to give it a shot and see what happens!
HSS and I sat Morgan down in her highchair, and put on a bib round her neck. I chose the try out this thingy here first.
|What's this?! [25June2012]|
Morgan's reaction seemed to be "What's this thing she's putting in my mouth? Why can't I suck on it? What's this new taste? THIS IS ALL SO STRANGE!! AND STOP TAKING PHOTOS OF ME WHILST I TRY TO FIGURE IT ALL OUT!!!!!!!!!"
|"I'm so confused!!" [25June2012]|
Having noticed his eagerness to give it a try, I handed over the spoon and my seat, and went camera-happy myself.
|Hand-over completed! [25June2012]|
|"Why are you making strange sounds? AND WHY ARE YOU NOT FEEDING ME?!" [25June2012]|
|Food is fun! [25June2012]|
|"Ok, just a little bit more." [25June2012]|
|Is it time for my milk yet?! IS IT?! [25June2012]|
When she started showing signs of distress, we stopped the First Meal and gave her her bottle as usual - which she drained happily.
Since then, we're trying the weaning thing twice a day - breakfast and lunch just before giving her her bottle. With every Feeding Session, she eats a little bit more, and is slowly getting the hang of it!
On other news, Morgan's second tooth is breaking through! This one is on the left bottom side - it is either a canine or a molar, I'm not entirely sure. Tiny gums with no teeth make it difficult to say until the tooth emerges completely. Poor girl is in quite a bit of pain lately - however thankfully the Dentinox Teething Gel seems to do the trick in soothing her.
I'm currently trying my best to make the most out of the remaining days before this week is through. Monday is Back To Work for me. Eh, I'm dreading it to be honest - not because I don't like the job - I do. I missed it actually! I'm just not looking forward to spending so little time with Morgan and HSS. Morgan discovers something new every day - at least one thing evolves in her behaviour and in her physical appearance. Her First Word, First Crawl, First Step and a plethora of other Firsts are bound to happen at any given moment - and I'm likely to miss out on those milestones. I wish I could be a Stay-At-Home Mum, however it is in Morgan's best interest that I be a Working Mum.
