Derrick vs pancakes

Every morning that my husband is off from work, we do a nice breakfast together.  My husband plays short order cook and I get to sit back and enjoy all the smells.  When Derrick was first included, I wanted him to take part in our weekend breakfast ritual.  Since he is too young to eat eggs, I decided to try pancakes.
Since we are battling a milk protein intolerance, I used the following recipe from MSPI mama
Milk Free Pancakes
Derrick really enjoyed his pancakes and this will be a must try again.

You can also use a milk free pre-made batter.  Bisquick batter is milk free and we enjoy using this too.

Derrick vs apples

I was reluctant to try apples with Derrick.  Whenever I thought about giving them a try, I never had any on hand, or the ones I had on hand were small.  But, when Derrick turned 7mos old and we started to include him in breakfast, I needed more ideas.  So one morning, I grabbed an apple.  I peeled and sliced the apple and cooked it in the microwave.  Surprisingly, they cooked well.  I gave them a quick sprinkling of cinnamon and voila! Breakfast!

I was surprised how well Derrick picked up the small apple slices and really enjoyed eating them - yummy
