Solids and stuff
On Saturday, Sunday, and Monday I teach play and learn classes at Gymboree. It's a nice opportunity for the boys to spend some quality time with their dad, and a chance for me to shake up my regular routine (and make a lil $$) the kids I teach are 9 months-2 years old and I also do birthday parties for 1-5 year olds. It's such a great oppertunity to meet other parents and caretakers as well as the awesome kids, and it feels good to be able to help the adults connect with and learn about their little one's development.
Tuesday is my first day home with the boys this week. I decided to start giving them solid meals today, mostly because they have 4 teeth each now, but also because we're currently out of baby food. 😁
They had scrambled eggs, sliced pears and toast for breakfast...
...bananas and rice cake for lunch...
...and lightly mashed potatoes, butternut squash cubes and kale chips for dinner.
I also made up a new menu for this week!
I'm already a bit off schedule. I made the enchiladas last night, but everyone went to bed early, so we'll be having those for lunch this week. 😃 I did make the salmon tonight though, and it turned out great!

The kale was just sautéed and steamed with grape seed oil and salt & pepper.
