離乳食そろそろ卒業 No more weaning
  
れんこんのきんぴら、ブリ大根、厚揚げキャベツ炒めです。
最近こりすが食べ物をぽりぽり言わせながら食べたり煮ものを美味しそうに頬張るのにひそかに感動しているお母さん。だって、重湯から初めて約1年、長かった離乳食期を経てやっとここまできたって感じなんだもん。
今まで気をつけていた塩分糖分乳脂肪分も、1歳半を過ぎたので少しずつ何でも食べさせていくつもり。幸いアレルギーもないみたいだし大人の味から隔離しすぎるのもかえってよくないかなと思ったりして。甘いものとかも挙げなさすぎると反動がひどいって聞くしね。
食べるのが好きすぎて食べ過ぎが心配になることもあるけど、これからアメリカに行っても好き嫌いなく大きく元気に育ってね☆

Lotus root "kinpira"(lightly simmered lotus root in sweet and spicy stock), stewed yellowtail and Japanese radish, and stirfried deep fried tofu and cabbage.
it's an amazing sight to see when Kanata munches away lotus root or eats stewed fish with a smile. A little over a year since I started weaning, it’s quite emotional to see that he's come this far from bland rice water.
So, it's about time to loosen those restrictions I had set on sugar, salt, and fat a little. Kanata's had no major food problems so far, and he's obviously very much interested in food, so he's ready to be introduced to more "adult" tastes now.  I believe it's important that he knows what cakes and chips taste like at this point, too, as I can see him going ballistic the longer I postpone his first encounter. 
 There are times when I feel Kanata's too interested in eating and thus eats too much, but nevertheless I'm glad he's not a picky eater and hope that he stays that way.

ことば talking

赤ちゃんから子供に成長中です。

Growing up into a little boy.


最近こりすのコミュニケーションが受け身メインだったのが自分からも気持ちを発信するようになってすごく新鮮。本人も楽しいのかべらべら1日中しゃべってます。

感動的なのはもちろんなんだけどこないだおもしろかったのが「ママー、あいちて!」と連呼していたこと。

んもー、言われなくても愛情全開よとメロメロになってしまう母なのでした。

 

Kanata is showing great progress in communication. He seems to be talking all day, enjoying his new ability to express himself rather than being passive.

The other day Kanata was shouting “Mama aichite!” which sounds like “Mum love me!” in Japanese.

Aaaaahhh, how cute! Of course I’ll love you everyday with all my heart!

嬉しい訂正♪♪ Happy correction

 前のエントリーにひとつ大きな大きな訂正が...こりすが歩いたよー!
おめでとうこりす☆☆☆
というわけで記念に感慨深い写真を。これ、今年の6月から今まで履いた靴たち。後列が現在現役選手たちね。しかし4ヶ月で4足。赤ちゃんの成長ってすごいわ。

There is one very very important correction to make on the last entry... Kanata walked the very day the entry was uploaded! Well done, Kanata!
So to celebrate his first step alone into the world I took a pic of all the shoes he's worn so far since June. Kanata wears the pairs in the back row, but what is more amusing than the fact that Kanata has gone through four pairs of shoes already in 4 months?
All I can say is wow!

歩くの大好き Oh the joy of walking


こりすのあんよがここ1ヶ月で急に完成形に近づいてきた。

何かを持っていたりしてバランスが良ければ3から5歩くらいは歩くし、興味なさそうだった押し車も2週間ほど前から大好物。砂場大好きだったのに今やスルーで「あっち!」とい言いながらガラガラと進んでいく姿がもうかわいいかわいい☆

おかげでまだ必要ないと思っていたビデオカメラを購入してしまいました。

こりす、一人歩きデビューはぜひ記録に残せる環境でお願いしますね。うふふ。

Kanata’s rapidly showing signs of walking this past month.

He can take a good few steps on his own when he’s holding something in his hands, and it’s so delightful to see him push his toy car for what must seem like miles and miles for him. He seems to have fallen in love with his little “Nissan GT-R” so much that he won’t even give his former paradise sand pit a second look! He walks about using his car and my hand alternatively saying “atchi, atchi (there, there)!”.

His little adventures are oh so sweet that we decided to buy a new HDD camcorder earlier than planned. So Kanata, do make sure you take your first step alone when we have our camera ready!

なぜ伸びた? mysterious growth
 やっと朝晩だけは涼しくなってきて嬉しい!
でもこりすはひとつとても気になることがあるようで...。
それは長袖!パジャマを長袖に衣替えしたんだけど、毎回袖を引っ張ったり腕を凝視しては不満顔。「やー!」と言いながら明らかにはがそうとする姿がかわいい☆
こりす、本格的に寒くなるまでには長袖に慣れてね。

 

Finally the air is starting to cool down, and although to me this is great news, Kanata is having difficulty to understand one thing: what are long sleeves and trousers? I changed his PJs to long ones a few days ago, and so far Kanata pulls his sleeve and stares at his arm with a puzzled look on his face. Bless!

Let’s hope he’ll understand why his clothes seem to have grown suddenly soon.

ホットケーキミックス pancake mix

ホットケーキミックスでこりすの朝ご飯/おやつを作った。
牛乳だけでのばした生地にチンしたバナナとレーズンを適当に入れて焼いただけ。
なのになんでしょうこのホッとするおいしさ。
以前から使っていたけど、こりすが我が家に来てからは必ずストックしています。
たくさん作って冷凍できるし、アレンジ自由自在だし、ホント考えた人偉いわ!

I made this diced banana and raisin cake using a pancake mix to give Kanata for breakfast/snack.
I always make sure I have a stock of pancake mix in my kitchen especially with Kanata. It makes life so easy when you want to make a homemade snack but you only have teeny weeny time and the great thing about pancakes is that you can freeze them. 
To me, pancake mix is one of the best inventions of human kind ; )
