Must. Eat. Food!

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who would only consume booby juice. She looked at her parents in horror whenever they tried to put solid foods in her mouth. Thanks to the advice of books, magazines, and blogging friends, the little girl's parents relaxed and tried again a few weeks later.

Those weeks flew by and the parents eagerly fed solids to the little girl. Again, she looked on in horror and spit the wretched stuff out. No, she was not ready for change and refused to cave based on others' wishes.

A few more weeks flew by, only this time when a not-entirely-lactose-based-product was placed into her mouth, she paused...she tasted...she swallowed! Her eyes lit up as her taste buds sprang to life at this new discovery. She opened her mouth wide and waited. Her anxious parents realizing she wanted more, quickly scooped the luscious substance onto the spoon and fed it to her. The little girl was so delighted in this finding, she couldn't help but say, "Mmmmmmmmmm." There was no turning back, she was hooked.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, here it comes!


Carrots, oh yeah!

Green beans, ummm, I can take them or leave them.

Alright, so I'll leave them...on you that is...THBPBPTHPT (major raspberry, targeting those within range)!!!!

Oops, I sprayed.

Ummmm, I don't suppose I could have another shot at those tasty carrots?

Fun times! In the too-soon future, you'll be taking photos of her eating spaghetti. Or that is, wearing it!

p.s. It think the word verification just made me type something like "me hot". Woohoo! It was like reading a fortune cookie. Me hot!!!!

Mealtimes only get more fun. Sometimes Q smells like he's been marinated in strawberries.

Oh dear lord she is ADORABLE.

Thanks to those pictures I think my ovaries are doing jumping jacks. Ouch. It hurts.

Keep pushing those veggies, Mama.

Isn't that girl having SUCH a lot of FUN?? Clever mommy, to have the camera at the ready. She will love this post when she's a Big Girl. (As in, two years old.)

"Oops, I sprayed". Priceless. Keep at it, one day she'll love those green beans. As I recall, my kids were pretty fond of the squash too (but don't even bother with baby food mashed potatoes, total waste of time. I wish someone would've told me)! Cute, cute , cutey-cute!
