No food for you!


It's official. Anthony hates food. We have been giving him different foods since he was four months old, and so far we still cannot get him to like (or even eat) anything. I've made him everything - peas, carrots, peaches, potatoes, sweet potatoes, avocado, tomatoe soup, bananas, etc. He does fine with the first spoonful. But once he realizes what you have done he gets this look on his face like you have betrayed him. And after that he holds his mouth so tightly shut there is no way you can get a spoon in there. The only thing we haven't tried yet is meat, so we'll try that soon and see how it goes. But it looks like he might prefer his bottle for quite some time. He does, however, really enjoy sitting in his high chair.

Don't get too successful at it... in 12 or 14 years, you will have to make a trip to the grocery every day to keep food in the house...

Love the 'peace' sign! Is he giving a shoutout to his peeps?! LOL!

Ha! I didn't notice the peace sign at first. That's awesome. I bet Jared loves it.

Don't worry, I don't think the kids in his kindergarten class will make fun of him too much for bringing his bottle.

Adam was like that. We figured out he liked finger foods best. Don't know if Anthony is the same way but Adam survived the picky eater stage. Oh, wait, he's still in it!
