WIEIAD: Mommy and Baby Edition

So many mamas have been asking me how I prepare Scottie’s food. I’ll be honest, there was a ton of google-ing, book reading and youtube-ing involved before I finally got the hang of things! I’m still no expert now, but I definitely learn new tricks everyday, and my baby is happier and chonkier than ever!

I know the easy way out would be to buy the pre-made baby food from the grocery store, but I find it so fulfilling to make scottie food from scratch instead. Since I’m just at home these days, it’s not so hard to do. Plus, I get to make sure he gets all the healthy stuff in his diet. Watching him eat is a treat in itself and it definitely makes everything worth it. Scottie Mukbang anyone?

I’m so proud of myself for slowly learning my way around the kitchen! Even though most of my recipes are just simple and easy, I’ve come a looong way! I even prepare meat dishes for Scottie- and I don’t even eat meat! #ThatsLove
