Vegetable Eater!

Looks like we managed to get Z's non-veggie eating derailed for a bit.  She used to LOVE veggies.  She would gladly eat broccoli, carrots, green beans, you name it.  Then she just stopped, she would refuse it and not touch a bite.  Well last night we finally decided it was enough.  After a little threatening, no more sausage until you eat some broccoli and even throwing in the possibility of watching a little more of Toy Story before bed wasn't enough.  This is when Liam took over and put them both on the same fork with his salmon.  Veggie first then fish.  And she ate it!  I was so happy I gave her a high 5 and gave a "yay!" That became the veggie eating cure for the night.  After each piece, she got a high 5 and a "wow, doesn't that taste so good? Good job!"  Now I'm not usually one for praise for things you should be doing anyway, but the fact that we got some broccoli and potato into her after a long veggie drought it was enough to park that thought for a while.

Boo is happily eating anything and everything we give her.  She's at 3 meals per day.  I went crazy with the baby food making (carrots, squash, green beans, broccoli, applesauce), so she has a good selection including oatmeal.  Chicken and maybe salmon will be next.  But she gets ravenous.  I'm still feeding her 4-5 times per day and she's getting her fill of milk for sure, but she's also all about food.  I think it's the fact that she's moving so much now.  Her new adventure is to try and stand up without holding onto anything once she pulls herself up on the couch or chair.  It generally ends in .5 seconds of standing and has helped her perfect her butt fall.  The other fun thing is I think she's finally getting the whole sign language thing.  She will sign more every so often, especially when she wants more food, but we're still doing a few other key signs to hopefully get more out of her in the future.

Another phone interview today! And I was contacted by a recruiter I emailed in November about a possible position.  So yeah...
