The love has been passed on....

My love of food has most definitely been passed on to Bubba...He was a champ breastfeeder right off the bat and now blows peoples minds  with what he manages as a 13 mth old to get down his hatch...For example, last week with a friend, who has a baby the same age as Noal, we gave them hotdogs for lunch...Her baby only ate the hotdog plain & cut up, while Noal ate the whole thing on the bun with ketchup, mustard & relish on it...My friend was shocked claiming she cant even get her 8 yr old to eat relish...I guess I never really thought about it but I give Noal whatever I am eating to some extent and he seems to like it...I love that my boy is a good eater!! I would have been definitely disappointed if he ate like a little bird...Hes so bold about it too...Hell go right over to whomever is eating what he wants & open his mouth and say ah ah ah till they give him a bite...Persistent little thing- wish I could get away with that...
 
This week was beyond hard...Returning to work & leaving my little guy at daycare has broke my heart...Hearing him wail & call out Mum Mum after I say bye & turn to leave kills me...I have had a few more cries, random mums hug me at drop off & co-workers try to distract me with Bachelor Pad talk...Noal has had a hard time adjusting & going to daycare has messed up his sleep patterns beyond belief...Hes been waking up at 4 am & will not go back to sleep for the love of anything...And naps that he became a champ at have been a nightmare- he cries and cries and doesnt want to be left alone...Im hoping it all works out in a few weeks but right now he is miserable, Mumma is tired & the hubs is sad watching us both struggle with the adjustments...The one good thing however is my Bubbas love of food...The daycare worker said no matter what mood he is in, if she brings out the highchair to eat lunch or a snack, right away Noal is happy & excited...It makes me happy that food brings him joy too!!!
