I thought this will only happen much later when Yvette is much older. Yvette being a baby, who doesn’t like to be belted on the high chair for meal, does make her meal time longer.
I didn’t plan for this today. It has just strike my mind while I was preparing our lunch.
Shall I eat together with Yvette?
But I don’t have a high chair for eating at the high table or any portable with belt chair around at home for Yvette. I looked around the house carefully for chair for Yvette’s height and I found one little stool that might work for this “meal time”. I placed her near to the sofa so that she will not topple backward. And this stool is the right height for her when she is in standing position.
I steamed chicken with ginger and stir-fried a cauliflower, carrot with bean curb. I cooked some plain porridge for both of us. But I added some flaxseed into Yvette’s porridge.
Pictures speak aloud how Yvette had enjoyed this meal with me.
As Yvette didn’t like to wear a bib for her meal now, I have to change her clothes after the meal including cleaning up. (Honestly, there wasn’t a lot of cleaning up need to be done. And I can proudly tell my husband this evening, I put the red table into VERY good use today.)
P/S: I think the self-feeding time in JGC does help me bring the eating on the table concept to Yvette.
