What's new this week--although it's only Tuesday? Kaylie finally started to say her 'D's--her first consonant!!!! This is HUGE! She is very quiet about it and doesn't do it all that often, but we have both heard her a few times now in the past two days! I couldn't be happier.
I've been pushing table food this week. Not really pushing it, but they are not as interested in the spoon so I am taking that cue. They are getting the hang of it but I never realized how hard it can be to find foods that they will eat while making sure they are still getting the proper nutrients. Ryan has pretty much refused everything. Pasta is a no go. Tonight I caved and tried chicken nuggets. They were a hit, especially with Ryan! This must run in the family as their cousin, Rachel, is known to enjoy a nugget or two. Anyway that was the first food he actually gobbled up. He could live on Cheerios and Puffs if I let him. Kaylie is willing to try anything and even ate a few bits of broccoli.
Some foods I've tried already: homemade mac & cheese, grilled cheese, toast with jelly, green beanas, waffle, pastina, orzo with broth, ravioli (plain), broccoli, peas, carrots, watermelon, raspberries, bananas, apples. There's probably more, but I'm done thinking about it.
Going to try eggs, venture into tomato sauce, and make a quiche. There may be a lot of casserole making going on in this house. We'll see.
Here are some pictures of them enjoying their nuggets tonight. I love the first one with Cheerios stuck to K's face.
I'm still cute right?
Got any food suggestions? Leave me a comment with recipe!
