Top 10: Favorite Food

February 13, 2012 — Leave a comment
I heard so many stories of children who were either picky eaters or never wanted to eat their vegetables. I am so thankful that my little one not only loves his veggies but he actually enjoys them more than fruit! Parenting has no road map and every child is different so you never know what kind of eater you will get. Here is my top 10 list of foods that I never thought my child would love but does!
  1. Avocado 
  2. Squash
  3. Mushrooms
  4. Almond milk
  5. Cauliflower
  6. Kale
  7. Prune juice
  8. Peas
  9. Broccoli
  10. Bell pepper

Top 10: I Love This Age

“I just thank God for all of the blessings.” James Brown  

“Children make your life important.” Erma Bombeck  

Each day is a blessing. My little boy is about a week or so away from being 10 months old. Time literally goes by fast! My husband and I were talking about how amazing it is that in a matter of a month Eli can change so much! So today I am counting what I love about the stage that he is at. Of course this is not all that I love about it since it’s a top 10 list, but it is definitely some favorites!

  1. Laughter. I love Eli’s laugh, especially when he chuckles. And I love that he makes me laugh! 
  2. Teeth. He is getting two top teeth. While the process of cutting teeth isn’t fun, I love that smile when they are in.
  3. Snot. Yup I said it. I love the face he makes when he is “blow” snot bubbles… even though usually nothing comes out.
  4. Food. I love that he eats table food, he eats what we eat. He is very independent!
  5. Sleep. He has always been a good sleeper and still is. I am very thankful!
  6. Talking. Eli says dada 90% of the time but he has said momma! I love hearing him babble.
  7. Pulling Up. This was a big change in our house! One day he decided to pull himself up and since then the exploring of the house has not stopped. I love watching him learn and get stronger as he walks along the coffee table.
  8. Crawling. He is a fast crawler, although it is still the army crawl, he gets where he wants quickly! I still think its cute how he gets around army style.
  9. Hair. My kiddo has crazy hair, I usually say he has Eli hair! His hair has a mind of its own and I love it.
  10. Thumb sucking. My baby boy sucks his thumb. He only does it when he is sleeping, but I love how precious it is when I go check on him and he is sucking his thumb. (Of course I may be asking for advice when he is older on how to stop the thumb sucking, lol! )
