Baby Steps

Those of you who have spent any time around my younger daughter may be aware of the fact that she is a tad picky about what goes into her mouth.  Just a little.  Not much.

She has been getting slightly (slightly!) more adventurous, though.  Yesterday she tried a purple jellybean and a red jellybean, so that's something.

The other night, I made a bargain with her -- she wanted strawberry cereal bars instead of dinner, and I said that if she would eat some real strawberries, she could have cereal bars after.  Because I bargain with her sometimes.  You know, to get nutrition down her throat.

It worked, but her little face as she ate strawberries was the funniest thing that I have ever seen.

One of the big draws, apparently, was getting to cut them herself, so we let her do that.  It degenerated a bit into mushing up the strawberries and then complaining that they were "too juicy," but she choked some down.  It was slow progress, but progress nonetheless.
