Evan ate three times today!

Yes--you read that correctly. Evan ate three oral "meals" today (and wore three different outfits because of the mess--bibs just don't cut it at our house!). I already posted on the carrots for breakfast. Here is what else he had:

Lunch was chicken-tomato noodle soup. I made a big pot of soup for Jeremy and I to work on this week, and I had some for lunch. Since Evan has already tried most of the soup ingredients separately and done fine, I figured what the heck. A big ladle-full went into the Vitamix, and came out looking food. At first, Evan was not in the mood for sitting down to eat and kept trying to wiggle out of the high chair (I know what he was thinking: "Mom, we've done this today already!"). But after a few bites he settled down and let me feed him about 2 oz. It felt really...normal--so this is what it's like feeding a typical kiddo. Very messy, too--you have heard of Mr. Noodle? Well, here is Mr. Chicken-Noodle!

For dinner, Evan had some strawberry-banana yogurt and a piece of Zwieback toast (the toast he basically just threw on the floor--no interest in eating that what-so-ever). He ate maybe an ounce of yogurt, before having a mini-meltdown. Here is a picture of dinner just prior to the toast going overboard for the third time (someone needs to tell Evan he is not at The Rocky Horror Picture Show).

Hal (VitalStim therapist) is going to be super excited tomorrow!

Wow Evan! All I can say is Wow! Don't gain too much weight or you won't be fitting into those new snow pants I just got for you today. Three meals today, that is such a good little eater. Mommy doesn't think that you will grow that fast, so just enjoy eating.
Love, Grandma Key
