As promised last week, here’s a little first birthday WIAW to fill your day with cute.
I desperately wanted to stage a fancy schmantzy oh-so-trendy cake smash session for the chickpea. I’m talking tutus, balloons, party hats… the works! When the big day arrived, I quickly abandoned ship at the opportunity to skype with P. As soon as that coveted call came through, we grabbed the cake and ran outside just in time for her to literally faceplant into it. It was spontaneous and fun and everything I could have asked for. So was it some token pinterest-worthy fiesta? No, but all we really needed was our favorite pilot and a boatload of sugar for pure cake smash perfection.
I may have told her cake was a vegetable.
What I Ate Wednesday
Since introducing the chickpea to whole moo cow milk this month, she’s quickly gone down to two servings of milk a day [7 oz in the morning and 8-9 oz before bed] and 5-6 mini meals throughout the day. Breakfast was brown rice and oat cereal in almond milk along with some fresh melon. Snack #1 was an organic colby cheese stick and a few crackers. Lunch was some more melon and mushroom ravioli and red sauce. Snack #2 was a face full of cake!!!! She wears it well. And finally, dinner was a PF Changs-pallooza. I was floored over how much this kid was able to put down. She had an obscene amount of chicken, egg, and veggie fried rice, sauteed broccoli, fried green beans, and even some eggplant too!
Go chickpea, go!
