you are what you eat

Thank you to all of you out there who left a comment and have been thinking about our NieNie this past week.

She is doing amazingly well. We are so very blessed. She is quite the talented bone grower and is working hard to fuse the back of her head together.

The silver lining is the kick that I get out of hearing Chichi say "Did you fall dooooown and brokt your croooown?"

I'm still having a hard time getting her to eat solids. She was never big on them and since the accident she has little to no interest. This morning she had about 1 tsp of cereal and then gave up.

Do you have a trick to get your baby to eat food? Or a food that your baby just loves?

Do I love messy baby faces? Yes, yes I do.

My kids all hated rice cereal, but would eat the barley cereal (which isn't as thick as oatmeal I think). Good luck!

My second daughter hated any form of baby cereal. I had to mush up bananas and bake sweet potatoes. Just put a yam in the oven, (in a pan lined with foil) with the skin on, at 400 degrees for one hour. Let it cool. Cut of a small piece, take the skin off, mash it with a fork, add a little water (to get the right consistency) and serve! I just save the rest in the fridge for the next couple of days.

There is this funny little book I checked out at the library called Feed me I'm yours. The version I got was a bit outdated but still had good "baby food" ideas.

Yeah, dump a cup of sugar in it and I'll bet she'll suck it right down! :)

We mix the cereal with bananas, orange juice, or juice squeezed from grapes...he hated the cereal until we mixed those things in.

So glad she's doing well-- we were so worried when we saw your post. She's been in our thoughts and prayers. That has to be the worst to see your tiny baby in so much pain. Our three year old had quite the summer for accidents, and that was hard enough.

My babe loved to eat the flavored kind- I think it was apples in it, hope that helps. Now he is 2 and every meal is a struggle. He just isn't a big eater and it is bad to be skinny -if I only had that problem.
