T minus 3 days

Today I am so thankful that I have such a good eater.  Honestly, the boy eats anything I put in front of him and is known to grab food right out of my hand.  I started him on table food from our very first day together.  Not too much in the beginning—congee and mushed up fruits.  He hasn’t had too much baby food.  I usually only rely on that when I am feeling lazy.  If I am getting a Lean Cuisine, he’s getting baby food.  Last night I made salisbury steaks and gave him the cooked hamburger before adding the sauce.  He also ate steamed broccoli and cajun fries (baked fries with cayenne pepper and paprika).  The Spud will eat anything and I am so fortunate.  And for anyone gasping in horror, it does not bother his stomach.  An Indian friend of mine confronted me over the weekend about his diet.  He told me Vietnamese babies eat spicy food and he needs to be started on spicy foods early or he wouldn’t like much food.  He told me Indian parents come here and start their babies on bland American diets and they grow up only eating hamburgers.  No worries, this boy sucks it down and begs for more.

IMG_1558 I LOVE this photo and the look on his face.

T-3 days.  I go back to work on Monday.  I’m pretending it’s just a figment of my imagination.
