Electric Shock

A few days ago, Andres started yelling in the other room and I rushed to see what had happened. Something had hurt him, but I couldn’t see what. When he pointed to the corner, I saw he’d being plugging an electric cable into the socket, something he’s loved to do since a long long time, and which no number of saying NO has been able to stop. From the state of the plug being half plugged into the socket, I guessed that he’d been touching the metal pin of the socket when it made contact to live electricity. 220V of current, ouch! Poor fellow. “Stom” (current) now means “AAuu” to him.

Here are two of my yummy recipes for Baby food from the time when Andres still ate porridge. They’re history now:

Carrot/Potato Porridge: Pressure cook 1kg of carrots and 300g of potatoes for 15 minutes. When done, add 230ml of water (use the water from the cooking) and puree it all. Let cool. Add 1 Tbsp of vegetable oil per 200g before serving warm.

Carrot/Meat/Veggie Porridge: Pressure cook 2kg of carrots, 800g of potatoes, 220g of boneless chicken, 2 small Fennel or Zucchini for 15 minutes. When done, add 500ml of water (use the water from the cooking) and puree it all. Let cool. Add 1 Tbsp of vegetable oil per 200g before serving warm.

Potty

On the 25th of August he actually went to the grown-up toilet, climbed up on it, peed, climbed down and flushed. This was during our Holidays in Plakias. He does the same often now, sometimes using his baby potty. I have to monitor that he doesn’t turn it over once he’s done. He hasn’t learned to poop on the potty yet, which I discovered again today when there were two rather large pieces on the floor.
