self-feeding,self-weaning & a molar~!

Made potato and tuna patties for Aidan yesterday afternoon..Fed him 5 pieces and decided to let him feed himself using a fork with the 6th. Boy, was it a messy affair! Food ended up on the floor, on his face, his clothes, his hair, the chair-tray...everywhere but in his mouth. He couldn't tahan after a while so he gave up with the fork and decided to just use his hands instead :)


Aidan's first molar sprouted sometime early this week. It was his lower left molar. I didn't realise it till my in-laws told me [and I'm the one who's with him 24/7 .tsk!] They were playing toss with him and when he was laughing with his mouth wide open, they glimpsed the li' white crown of the lower molar and dad then checked to see if it was really there.

This could be the reason why he was drooling heaps during the last week too. I did notice that his temperature was a li' higher than usual then but not too high to cause any alarm. Thankfully, he didn't fuss at all which was why I didn't know the molar had appeared!

His other molars should be sprouting soon too I guess...Just hope that they won't irritate him that much.


Oh..and Aidan self-weaned off breastmilk sometime last week .He had stopped wanting to nurse in the day about 3 weeks back and was purely nursing at night (to sleep) and recently, he didn't want to nurse at night anymore too.

Kinda sad actually coz I'd really enjoy the nursing sessions with him. I guess I should be glad that he was able to nurse for over a year even though I was breastfeeding him partially only [yeah, i'm trying to console mysef].

Hiyoh! The Hmmm pic of him is soooo cute! Heh. Thank goodness for unlimited downloads now, I can watch Aidan's videos!!!

And well, since u're sad about him self-weaning... maybe its time to have another one to replace that displacement effect ;)

there're even bits of food on his hair.. haa.. so cute..
Feb. 22nd, 2004 07:02 am (UTC)
heh..yeah. when he flicks his fork, the food always somehow ends up on his hair instead of his mouth :P
Feb. 22nd, 2004 06:56 am (UTC)
Woah! milestone! for learning how to eat and a molar! :D
Feb. 22nd, 2004 07:03 am (UTC)
well, he has no problem eating usin his hands for a while but i think his hands r still not that adept at holding a fork/spoon :) thats y he's in such a mess!

Yeah..the first molar is a milestone i think :)
Feb. 22nd, 2004 07:07 am (UTC)
HE is so bak bak. C is soft like tofu and no prizes for guessing why. :)
Feb. 22nd, 2004 07:14 am (UTC)
yeah..he is v bakbak..and very 'teng' (hard)..he feels quite muscular to me actually.

Actually, most li' girls i've carried feels really soft n 'fluffy'...I dunno issit a natural trait or what..But Claudia is one of the 'softest' one and + that she looks like a doll too!

Love the pic of him with the handle of the fork in his mouth - something about those eyes! Like he's got something on his mind, and he's up to no good....
Feb. 22nd, 2004 06:17 pm (UTC)
hehe..i bet u are the type that goes for those 'wild' boys instead of the 'decent studious type'!

Yeah..aidan always has that 'cheeky' look actually..like he's plannin something devious!

6pcs?? Aidan's appetite is damn gd right?? How big is one?
He's very gd with fork leh. I'm impressed.
Feb. 22nd, 2004 05:51 pm (UTC)
The patties r abt the same size of those in this pic :)

and yeah, he has a great appetite. We usually have to be the one to control the amt he eats..not him tellin us when he has enuff becuz he never has enuff.

Heh..he basically just spears like crazy with the fork !

Tuna/potato Patties
Hi Angelia,

can tell me how to make the tuna & potatoes patties? It looks delicious and I want to make some for Isaac too!

Re: Tuna/potato Patties
It's really q simple..was my first time making it too since I saw Aidan enjoyed eating the potato patties at Lina's the last time. Got the recipe off the net but I didn't followed it to the t..more of a trial n error thingy..

4 potatoes
I small can tuna in brine, drained
Finely Diced carrots
1 cup sweetcorn, drained
1 tblspn fresh parsley, chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
Salt and pepper to taste
Olive oil for cooking

Steam or Boil potatoes and diced carrots. Mash potatoes and add tuna, diced carrots, sweetcorn, half of the beaten egg, pasley, pepper and salt (very little) and 'mould' into patties. Lightly brush the outer layer of patties with remains of egg and fry it in heated olive cooking oil till it turns slightly brown (and a li' crispy looking).

That's it :) If ur kid is allergic to egg, u can just remove it from the recipe. Carrots and sweetcorn is optional too. u can also choose to oven bake the patties instead of frying it.

Feb. 23rd, 2004 06:50 am (UTC)

How I wish Nicole eats like Aidan...she's only 9+kg at 15 mths! *ok why am I complaining when I am carrying her, scratch head*

Will try out your recipe this weekend and hope she likes them cos she's such a picky eater...dun eat meat, fish and lots of other stuff, I'm at my wits end of what to feed her. Maybe should have a get together session with Aidan and let her see how well A does with his food and maybe she will follow suit *cross fingers*
Feb. 23rd, 2004 05:54 am (UTC)
I think girls tend to be lighter so no need to worry that much abt her weight. And yeah...no joke carrying them when they are so heavy!

Heh yeah..try out the potato patties..she may like it. It's easy to make and the adults can eat it too.

U know..when the kids get together, some of the moms do comment that their kids do eat more due to peer pressure :)
Feb. 23rd, 2004 01:14 am (UTC)
those patties looked really good...i'm drooling liao. will find 1 weekend and experiment this at home for E.

Aidan's got a good appetite ya? 6 at one go...very impressive. my mum always says huh, kids can eat, very good....
Feb. 23rd, 2004 05:57 am (UTC)
oh..just to note..my mom-in-law adds fishcake (finely diced) and poundeded hei bi into the potato patties she makes too..and it makes it taste even better!!

Ya..aidan has a fantastic appetite..I'm not complaining :)
Feb. 23rd, 2004 04:47 am (UTC)
lovely pics as usual. about the drooling thing, wouldnt you rather i tell u some cultures believe its a sign of a healthy baby then that there is something wrong with aidan? :P

Re: San
heh..well, droolin is 'natural' for kids so whatever u say won't really be an issue hehe..

Hi! Been stalking (wonder if it's the right word to use? heh!) your LJ for a few weeks already! Oops! Decided to add you...Hope you don't mind! =)

Aidan's so way cute I couldn't help but revisit your site every time I log on to LJ! Looking at his photos and videos made me change my mind about not wanting kids in future! =) *hee* You are so lucky to have such an adorable baby!
Feb. 23rd, 2004 07:54 am (UTC)
heh stalk away :)

U are still young to think abt babies (i think)..I think wanting a child after one's married is a natural thing..I never did think i would become a mother either and look at me now :)
Feb. 23rd, 2004 10:46 am (UTC)
How much Aiden eat within a day? he seems like he LOVES his food :)
Feb. 24th, 2004 09:59 am (UTC)
he eats the normal 3 meals per day but he snacks a fair bit during the day itself :P..
