Taste Test

Will is cracking me up! The boy that used to eat everything is now not so sure about the world of food around him. When he is not sure about something he sticks his tongue out to see if it is good. If not you can guarantee that he is not going to be eating that today. This all started with his knew found independence. One day Will woke up and decided that he did not want to be spoon fed anymore so we quit pureeing everything and started giving him finger foods. Now it seems the only way I can get him to eat his veggies is if I sprinkle a little unsweetened applesauce over it. Then you would think he had found the best food ever! So tell me, is this normal? Am I creating a monster by using the applesauce. Any advice would be great! Below you will see pictures of Will eating a food that he does love... spaghetti. We tried it the other night and praise the Lord we didn't have to fight him to eat it!

I think that it is so funny that he will eat anything as long as it has applesauce on it.

Spaghetti is so much fun! Time to bring out the spaghetti o's, ravioli and beefaroni!

Use whatever you need to do to get him to don't KNOW that that's supposed to be gross!!! Really, you would give him applesauce separately, wouldn't you? No fear!

I remember the first time we taught Lawson how to "dip". (Food into things, I should have added! Not dip, dip!) From then on out, it has been dip-a-mania! For a few months, EVERYTHING was dipped into ketchup--fries, chicken, hot dog, GREEN BEANS, and MACARONI AND CHEESE!!! EWWWWW!!!

It'll pass... Just enjoy it, and take pics so you can give him grief later!!! :)

Thanks for the insight! It seems that everyday there is some new challenge to face. I guess that is what being a mom is all about!
