Saturday Work Day Bentos

A lot has happened in the past few months. In May, Senorcito decided he was ready to wean. After some shock and panic on my part trying to fill his changing nutritional needs, we have all adjusted. We introduced calcium fortified OJ for his calcium and vitamin D needs and I've been making a huge effort to get more fat into his diet via oils, avocado, and less lean meats. He's still a super healthy boy who loves to eat a variety of foods and is growing normally despite his allergies and related restrictions. As you can see, he certainly is not wasting away! Fortunately, he has recently gotten some beans back into his diet (woohoo!), but at the same time he's also lost apricot, nectarine, and strawberry due to reactions.

In June, my little guy turned 2! It's hard to believe how quickly time moves. For his birthday, I made him a frosting-less chocolate cake from Cherrybrook Kitchen. He was in love :)

Tomorrow is a work day for me, so I decided I was long overdue for a bento or two ...
