Eating time

Sorry it's awhile since our last post. Ive been meaning to but just been a little blog lazy lately. But to get going again here's some photos of Matthew during a couple of his Dinner / Snack times. I have to give a lot of props to my wife for helping raise Matthew so healthy. If it was up to me who knows what he would be eating. But Lei works hard to make sure he only eats whole foods nothing processed. She goes even as far as grinding all his oats and grains. baking and mashing sweet potatoes and squash for him. Which was a lot of work and really time consuming but its really paying off now that he's eating regular, un mashed foods. He just loves his Sauteed and steamed veggies, grilled chicken, salmon and tuna fish. His favorite snacks are raw carrots, raw tomatoes of our plants and pretty much any fruit, cherries are among the most fav, as you can see in the pics below. Oh and water. Tried to give him some juice once but he didn't like how sweet it was. even tried watering it down. I dont mean to brag about my kid, Well maybe i do... :D but im just really grateful for Lei being so strict with Matthew's diet. I know its most of the reason why we've been so blessed with Matthews good health. So Lei, if i haven't told you lately, Thank you!

We try to eat things he can eat so if he wants something off our plates he can. We aren't as strict with ourselves but we aren't bad. We decided from the beginning that even if we had to eat saimin everyday, we would make sure he would only eat the good stuff.

And so much props to Leilani for all the good feeding she is giving Matthew! I was so impressed that I am going to try be more like that. I got TONS of ideas from your post. Thanks for sharing! He is gonna grow to be so strong and healthy because his mommy takes so much time into making him the best food. Way to go!
