After work yesterday (4/8/14), we had to run some errands at the mall and decided to catch a quick dinner at the new “What the Pho Express” restaurant (thumbs down, in case you were wondering). Sebastian had just finished eating when we picked him up from school so we figured he’d be fine while we ate real quick. We were wrong! As soon as we sat down, he demanded (yes, demanded) he be fed! Eating at restaurants with a baby in tow is a totally different experience than without one but this was the first time he really consumed all of our attention! I barely got to eat – I can definitely see how many moms get so skinny at a certain point in time!
Don't get me wrong, we're so happy he seems to like food and isn't picky! With each passing day, the food section on his school "report card" continues to grow with all the meals and types of food he's eaten! And ALL of it is eaten no matter what is served! I'm also happy to report that he still loves his breast milk (he better)! ;) Yesterday he seemed super excited about my pho and kept banging his little hand on the table for more spoonfuls of soup and pieces of meat (bad habit, I know). He also tried getting up on the table to get closer to the food and would whine if he wasn't fed fast enough! By the time the meal was over, he was super grimy from feeding himself the meat chunks and his whole person smelled like pho broth. David and I were literally sweaty from trying to feed him all while attempting to keep him and the area clean! ;) Moving forward we will definitely need to come more equipped with extra bibs and wipes. (Darn, I wish I had a picture or video!)
Oh, and by the way, as soon as we got home, he proceeded to chug two bottles of breast milk before bath and bed time! He chugged another bottle before passing out, as well. We’ve got a cute lil’ porky on our hands, folks! :)
