Lunch time is my favorite time of day with Blake, besides dinner because then we get to eat as a family! But during lunch, it’s the perfect little break from the hustle and bustle of the day. I try really hard everyday to take time and make lunch for both of us and sit down at the table together. Even if it is later somedays than others because of work, that’s life and it’s our time and it’s special. We giggle and laugh, share food and generally Blake makes a mess, but that’s okay because luckily she has two pups that are HAPPY to clean up after her 😉 She is just starting to dabble into finger foods and it’s the cutest (also a little stressful ha!) to watch her try and stuff way too many pieces in her mouth. She always wants bites of my food and she will let you know it too with little flailing arms and tiny screams…and by tiny I mean not so tiny. Ha! The other day we were chowing down on grilled cheese and salad (grilled cheese for her, salad for me 😉 NOT the other way around, be proud!) and she was cracking me up. She learned a new trick…how to feed the dogs! Ha! She kept purposefully dropping pieces on the ground and then they would bark for more. That’s the part she thought was hilarious, their barking. I remember cracking up that what she thought was so funny, I find annoying most days…a barking dog. It reminded me to just enjoy those little things. Who cares if the dog is barking! She’s having a blast and we’re spending time together. It’s those little moments that make life so much better.
Now when we finish eating, that’s the really fun part 😉 FOOD EVERYWHERE and I mean EVERYWHERE. Luckily we have the best highchair in the world. Literally, no jokes. It’s new and it’s by 4Moms. I wish it existed right when she started using a highchair, but that’s okay, it’s here now!! It’s white and sleek looking (which might be favorite part…), plus it’s super functional! Are you ready for the best part? IT’S MAGNETIC! FREAKING MAGNETIC! Meaning, when you take off the tray while using their bowls and utensils, they stay right on without a problem. YAY! That’s a multi-tasking Moms’ dream. Some fun stats about the chair because I know y’all are going to ask!
•It has a 5 point harness that can transition to a 3 point when your babe gets older
•The top part of the tray comes off for easy cleaning, along with the entire tray if you want to take the full thing off
•It has 3 different height options and the foam insert comes right out and can be thrown in the dishwasher for an easy wash 😉 Can I get a HOLLA?
•Oh did I mention it’s MAGNETIC?!
•It’s available in three different foam color options
We’re obsessed in case you couldn’t tell. Seriously though, it fits right into our dining room/kitchen area and matches my style perfectly–which might seem like a silly thing, but I’m a freak about things coordinating! Plus I can take the tray off one handed and easily slide her in and out so that was like hitting the jackpot!
So once we’ve cleaned our fabulous highchair and basically given Blake a bath 😉 — she gets a little wild with her food. We snuggle, usually for like 30 seconds because she just wants to play, but whatever! Lunch is my favorite and it’s the perfect break from work and the crazy days!
What’s your favorite part about meal time??
