|Thanks for the pet gate, Mom! It made a world|
of difference during dinner tonight ...
No begging, just a peaceful
One recent highlight to our meal-sharing are these awesome trough-ed-bibs we've been using ... They are fabulous. We received them as a gift while I was pregnant and I remember thinking, "O.k. these are so bizarre .. really?? Are they all that great?? And yes. As a Mom of an 8-Month-Old ... I have a fabulously new appreciation for them!! Thomas has quickly learned (as in within 24 hours) to look for dropped bits of his favorite foods in the little trough .. if he wants toast and there is no more on his tray, he looks down to his trough and picks it out, leaving what he doesn't want ... hahah It is ingenious. He also stays significantly cleaner while he eats. Mmm. I recommend them. To everyone.
In other news, Thomas and I visited the Women's Expo today .. it was a pretty last-minute visit .. but we were fueled by a blog post by out La Leche League Mamas .. You can read their entry here, but to quickly summarize .. the Nurse Lactation Consultant (LC) said she was getting some grief about the appropriateness of having a Lactation Station at a public event like .. the Women's Expo .. O.k. Hello? Really? <sigh>

"Cabbage Head" thing to me one day ...
