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].
