What a week for Oskar!

January has been a big month for Oskar. He began to sit unaided at the beginning of the month. But this week he has excelled himself! Apart from gaining a tooth, he slept right through the night for the first time:-) I couldn't believe it this morning, when the alarm went off at 6am (Nils working in Grimstad all week) and I hadn't gotten up during the night. He went right from 7pm-6am. Just hope that it isn't a one off!
His transition to solid food is going reasonably well. Now that he has got used to porridge - he has that for breakfast along with pureed fruit. Lunchtime is trickier, as he tends to only like my elksoup at the moment. Not so keen on tasting individual veggies. Needless to say, he hasn't developed a taste for green veggies either. His cauliflower and asparagus were uncerimoniously dumped on the floor on the last tasting! Mind you, he doesn't like jar food either. I tried "Mormor's lapskaus" (Grandma's stew) and Turkey with veggies. Both were spat out at every mouthful. I did find a bit of comfort in this, as he doesn't like my "cherubs chowder" an Anabell Karmel recipe that I lovingly cooked for him. So far on both tastes, he showed an array of facial contortions! But I will keep plugging away as I still have 3 portions of the chowder in the freezer! What shall Oskar have today;-)
As Oskar has a small appetite, he hasn't worked up managing 3 meals a day yet!

It was a chilly minus 17 last night! Oskar and I went for our daily walk at noon today and it had warmed up to minus 8. Another bright and sunny day.......!
