Nate went from having no teeth to wow I can hardly keep count they're coming in so fast. Accordingly, he's been a little crabby-drooling-cry-at-the-drop-of-a-hat-ish, which isn't normal for him. Also, his appetite has changed, and he went from eating just about anything I put on his tray...to eating only peanut butter and jelly, crackers and yogurt.
Well, this will never do. I worry!
Of course I do....so today I figured I'd give him some raspberries for dinner....try to sneak in a few pieces of cooked carrots, and try a different sandwich (since he seems to like sandwiches lately).
The raspberries were working beautifully.
I warmed the carrots up, placed them in the midst of the raspberries...and then he paused...looked at the carrots...looked at me...and proceeded to pick them out and toss them aside!
Don't they look enough alike?
ok maybe not so much, but seriously, aren't they both bright and colorful and tempting??
I looked at him and said, "you'd like me to believe that you don't understand me...but I know you understand far more than what you let on, little boy. If you can tell the difference between a chunk of carrot and a raspberry, process the fact that you don't like carrots within a second or two, and begin to systematically remove them from your tray...then I don't know what."
All I can think is he must be genius.
