Landmark day: E’s first projectile vomiting of solids! Woo hoo!
He did seem to be eating an awful lot for dinner, but he has been doing so well with this that we didn’t think anything of it. Mashed peas and potatoes with a bit of canola oil (we realized a couple nights ago that he should be getting more fat in his diet), followed by lots of pureed peaches. Delicious! Then a wee top-up of mom juice. Put baby upright to burp, and what comes out? Not a burp! Well, I guess there was a sort of hearty bullfrog sound as the deluge arrived – so fresh it still smelled like peaches. (What an absolutely peachy baby! How nice of him!) And, as is his custom, he was completely unperturbed, before, during, and after the incident. Just watched with interest as we got cleaned up.
I know there are lots of moms out there whose babies vomit copiously all day long – and I do thank Heaven I’m not one of those. E is not much of a spit-upper at all, and prior to today, had only done projectile mode twice that I can remember, and that was long ago. So it felt like an adventure.
Also of note was E’s realization (and subsequently ours) that he is able to locomote by rolling. It was the first time we could see he was doing this deliberately: rolled off his play mat to go lick the table leg, and then when he heard his auntie calling him over on the mat, decided to go back over there, log-style. Good times!
