I'm a nut!

We were all swimming in the pool this afternoon and Avery was just jumping in and acting like her crazy self. All of us were laughing and my mom called Avery a little nut. So, she continued to swim, but all the while saying ,"I'm a nut, I'm a nut." She sure is our little nut. Speaking of nuts, which have become a staple of Avery's diet, I am just having the hardest time getting this little one to eat normal human food. She was such a good eater when she was younger, but lately she just will not eat anything normal. No pasta, rice, beans, eggs, etc. Basically whole wheat toast, nuts, fruit, frozen peas, salsa, and dairy. It is getting kinda hard to think of many variations of these foods. For dinner the other night I made these pasta noodles that she has been bugging me to open and I put cheese on them. She would not eat them cooked, but ate handfuls of them raw with ketchup. Good times. So, if any of you have suggestions on what to do please let me know. I am basically willing to try anything.

It's funny you say that about her diet. Silvester was the best eater when he was tiny, and now, it's like pulling teeth to get him to eat food. But he goes through phases and every few weeks it changes. Good luck - blame it on our side's genes.

Zuki is doing the same thing. I make her smoothies with veggies and fruit, and use canned peaches as the base. She likes that. She also wants a cheerio on each bite of food that she takes (including chicken). They are such little weirdos! SOOO much fun though.
