Eating, eating and MORE eating

We have been introducing new foods to Anders every day and it is so much fun to see what he likes.  Last week I made both of us grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch.  Even Bella had grilled cheese -- she got the crusts off of Anders' sandwich.  Anders ate the ENTIRE grilled cheese, only two small pieces were sacrificed to the floor.  It took him about an hour to eat it, but he kept wanting another bite...

"Mom, this chewing stuff takes forever!"

Anders likes filling his mouth so full that the last piece of food will start puckering out of his lips -- thankfully he always chews and never chokes. It cracks me up to see his puckered lips with a little chunk of watermelon or squash sticking out.

Other new foods we have given him: broccoli, pasta, carrots, vanilla pudding (only because Todd had made it and we decided to share very little with Anders -- he LOVED it), chicken, kiwi, and eggs.  He really loved having scrambled eggs for breakfast yesterday...I am thankful because I can fix that!

  1. That's great he's such a good eater! AC wont eat anything but bananas and puffs!! She OCCASIONALLY eats avocado - but we've tried peas, green beans, cherries, blueberries, pasta, carrots, pears, apples, cheese.... and all she wants to do is squish it. Sometimes she will put it in her mouth but for the most part just squishes it between her fingers. It's driving me NUTS! Maybe I'll try a grilled cheese... I'm willing to try anything - she can't keep eating all these bananas!!!!!
