Yassy’s note:Liam’s first year: Day 296 – Day 301

In the previous entry titled “Yassy’s note: Liam in NICU;day 8- day 14“, I wrote Liam came to our family about 3 weeks early (36 weeks and 2 days) and he has spent next 3 weeks in NICU.

He was tiny little baby; 18″ tall, weighing 5 lb 6 oz…

Day 296..

Today, I weighed him and he weighed 17.5 lb. He sits steady if he is having his hands on the floor but he has not sat without support yet.

As for solid food adventure, he had green beans. He had it this morning and he liked it:-) So far, cantaloupe is the only food he is bit iffy about to eat on its own (probably not the texture he can smash with his gum yet. He will eat it if mixed with cottage cheese or yogurt, but not on its own) .

Day 298..

I needed to make Liam’s broccoli and he cannot have stem part just yet, I ate the stem part (steamed) from his broccoli making.

Nothing shall be wasted,lol.

It was busy morning.. I made…. edamame new batch, onion new batch, broccoli new batch, and new fish for him tomorrow. When I look at the clock.it was close to noon already…

Liam just had his lunch after batch cooking and, he was so funny.It was oatmeal dish served with side veg dish; pinto bean, kabocha pumpkin, carrot, and flounder and every time he finishes chewing and swallow, he opened his mouth real big and lean forward while straps on the high chair is keeping him so he would not lean forward too much.

His legs were kicking and arms were looking like riding on the motorcycle and he made sound too!

Solid food time is very interesting and fun time!

Liam’s breakfast today.He had Mickey mouse,lol.

Menu include: Potato, creamy tomato soup, 5 bai gayu (porridge made with ratio water 5 rice 1) ,and green bean-tofu-flounder.

Tomorrow, he will be trying out Ahi Tuna. Since he cannot eat it raw, I have cooked up all the way with konbu. Hope he likes it:-)

Day 299…

Day 300…

Liam’s breakfast today. The meal from today will be a bit more fancier than a week before.He gets to explore more flavor and number of dishes:-)

Since he does good on yogurt and cottage cheese, he is now can try out butter. So, I have whipped up the white sauce in small amount and made Macaroni with white sauce:-)

Macaroni pasta’s chunk gets bigger from today from 2-3mm to 5mm.He did ok on that.He loved his new macaroni dish.The dish was topped off with corn.

Another side dish you see here is Ahi tuna and Asparagus in one, and Spinach soup in the other. The spinach soup was with Konbu dashi plus water from long simmered onion making.Liam loves the soup base combo too.

His lunch is based around Oatmeal, and dinner is based around bread gayu (rough torn bread without crust soaked in breast milk and cooked).

I am currently making 5 bai gayu (porridge made with water 5 rice 1 ratio) for Liam tomorrow.I made Potato for Liam in the morning. I am his personal chef,lol.

Stay tuned for more Liam’s story..
