This seven month old had a play date last week!
[The boy is in love.]
We had four little friends come over to sit and laugh and talk with us. It was wonderful! But I think the combination of being in the everything-goes-in-the-mouth stage and missing our nap left us both feeling a bit under the weather for a few days.
Isaac got his first little cough and was pretty clingy, but luckily [I’m still knocking on wood] didn’t have any other symptoms.
In order to help boost our immunity, I made a quick green drink for both of us. It was gone in no time, as were our symptoms.
Baby and Mama Green Drinks
Blend together the following [ingredients].
- 12-16 oz coconut water [we use it straight from the nut – canned would probably be too sweet]/regular water
- half an apple – cored and peeled
- half a pear – cored and peeled
- two big handfuls of spinach [about 2 cups worth]
Then add a scoop of whey protein to Mama’s!
— I use a high-speed blender [a Blendtec/Vitamix] which pulverizes everything to make a thick juice, but you could use a regular blender and strain it if the pulp is too thick for the babe.
— If possible, use only organic fruits/veggies for your little one!
