My first vlog

Vlogging is something I just don't do. WAY too embarrassing. But Katie, one of my favorite bloggers ever, from Kitchen Stewardship, is collecting videos of people taking cod liver oil, so I promised I'd post mine. I've developed a super-genius method that solves both the taste issue and the oiliness issue ... because that's worse than the taste, in my book -- the feeling of swallowing oil.

I made one big mistake here: you see how I touched the side of my mouth with my hand? That hand smelled like fish the rest of the evening.

My mannerisms totally remind me of my mom. I guess I've never seen a video of me eating before ... my expression is exactly what she does when someone asks her a question while her mouth is full. Good thing I like my mom, and don't mind the fact that I'm growing into her younger twin. It's just a little disconcerting.

Thanks to my videographer, whom I also happen to be married to. This is apparently the angle John sees me from all the time. He's kind of taller than me... by a lot.

Edited to add: Here's the baby taking his. At first he makes a face and I thought he didn't like it anymore, but I think it's just because I shot it to the back of his mouth too fast. He prefers to suck on the shooter. I just give him some of my oil mixed with water before I take it.

Those who are familiar with baby sign might notice that he is signing "all done" while saying "more." He's kind of confused about signs right now. He just cycles through all the signs he knows until he gets what he wants. He does "milk" reliably though; that's a new development in the past couple days.

I buy the capsules for me!!
but my kids actually chew them.
and ASK for them.
i'm bummed they discontinued the cinnamon gummies, my kids loved those. but they still like to take their CLO. In fact my 2 yo pretends to have a stomach ache so I'll give her some. LOL!

I think it's just about what our taste buds are used to. I'm glad I'm starting the baby on it now, so that he's used to taking it and likes it. He also loves liver. And the other day, I gave him bread and butter, and he took off the butter, ate it, and threw the bread on the floor! Babies have weird (but healthy) tastes.

Marko is so adorable!

(But you already knew that . . .)

I laughed at the beginning, when he jumped back and made a face. I'd also guess that you shot it to the back of his mouth too fast and he was startled.

And it's nice to hear what you sound like! =)
