Nutrient packed toddler meals

Making meals for a growing toddler gets tough some days. Baby K is good and eats most foods. He usually eats what I make for the family which makes life easy.

Since he has been sick with the flu the past couple months on and off I want to make sure he getting a lot of needed nutrients to help boost immunity!

He loves his fruits and veggies so I'm adding a lot more berries and green veggies like kale and broccoli. He is crazy for blueberries and if he sees them before his meal it's over and he will only want the blueberries ha!

We made kale chips the other night and baby k loved them! So that's a new item we added to our menu.

Now that we have the juicer I will make him fresh juice to sip too (kids should not drink more than 5oz of juice a day, I diluted the juice with water as well)

Fats are very important for a growing baby. Healthy fats like avocado. Baby K loves avocado and sometimes I spread it on his toast too.

Every week I'm looking for new healthy recipes and menu plans for baby K. If you have any meal ideas send them over my way!

A new recipe I found was chicken/veggie meatballs. I will try them this weekend and let you know how it goes!

Adorable Baby Art

Wednesday was baby K's last week at daycare (more on this another day) they gave me all the art he has been doing since he started there. Can you say ADORABLE!!

I can't wait to try out his art skills here at home haha. I bought some crayons and paint to try out. Little man will most likely want to eat the paint so I'm thinking of using ketchup and mustard to finger paint with first! Saw this on the baby first channel.

If you have any baby art ideas please send them over my way!

You are 14 months today!!

You are an amazing little boy! You love to sing and dance and babble away. You are starting to expand your vocabulary and repeat many words we say. You love playing with us and your friends and cousins. You are very social and love being around everyone. You are a happy baby. Always smiling, you bring such joy to our lives.

You are almost 20lbs! You are a great eater! You eat every thing! You still enjoy feeding yourself, mr independent ha! You always put your hands up asking for more. You love sitting and eating meals with us. It's our family time and we love that.

Your sleep has been getting better better these days which makes me happy ;) the days we are off you are always sleeping in, you know what mama needs ;)

You are in size 4 diapers and in 12-18 clothes.

You are running around all over these days. Touching everything. Your favorite thing to do is walk around the dining room in circles giggling away. Ha! You love Zoe and always go pet her when she's around and you try to play ball with her but she doesn't get it.

We love you sooo much! Watching you learn and grow is soo amazing!
Happy 14 months my sweet boy!

Cousin love

Yesterday night I babysat my nieces! It was fun. We were dancing and singing sipping juice and eating sweets haha.
It's soo fun watching my 2 year old niece play with Kristian. He looks up to her and follows her around haha. She was teaching him how to count and showing him the colors of the blocks. Kristian was copying everything she was doing. She was drinking juice so I gave him some too... He wouldn't put the sippy cup down and drank the whole thing.

I love that they are close in age and play together. They are adorable!!!
