New Foods

Since my appointment on Tuesday I've been moved up a stage into the "pureed" food category. This is both a blessing and a curse. For some reason I am entering into the world of "Bandster H-E-Double Hockey Sticks" :(

I am hungrier. No doubt. I feel like I am not getting enough protein in, for sure. I am just blah. Any other bandsters out there feel me???? Hungry, but don't feel like eating? Feel like you are either eating or drinking all day long, peeing all day long....sigh.

Ok, enough of that. My menus are currently including egg substitute with a piece of sliced cheese, a healthier version of "Texas Trash" so that I can get some refried beans for protein (I have never really been a refried bean fan) and some deli meat with mashed potatoes. I feel like I've already told you all this. Am I having deja vu or have I??? Guess I need to read an old post.... Oh and some low sodium V-8 juice, I don't think I can't handle the "pureed" food doesn't sound appealing to me at all!!!!!

I woke up today with a sore throat, not sure what that's about and I am also dealing with my costochondritis, which is a super inconvenient time for that to be going on.

What's on tap for our weekend? M and I have our very last Girl Scout meeting ever tonight. We have decided not to join Girl Scouts last year. This was her 6th year as a Girl Scout. We are going as a group to the drive-in movie.

Tomorrow I am meeting a girlfriend and her son with my two kids to see the same movie (that way my son can see it and I get to hang with my friend). We then have my nephew's 6th birthday party.

Sunday is church and then meeting my family for my aunt's birthday. Then we get a break on birthdays until the end of August. I don't know about you guys, but our family has a whole bunch of birthdays packed together from the middle of April until the middle of June.

What's in store for you this weekend? I'm looking forward to nice weather (FINALLY)!!!!


  1. I have been having 2 scrambled eggs mixed with 1 tbl of refried beans and a little cheese. It's almost to much food for me all at once, but it have been a nice change of pace in mushy land. Also there is a brand of baby food called Sprout (comes in little pouches) it is pretty good and some of the Gerber stuff isn't too bad.

  2. Add some protein powder to your V8...that'll help with the protein requirements. Also, have you ever tried making your own green smoothies. It's a great way to get in leafy green veggies without eating baby food and by blending it with berries, it tastes pretty good. :)
