We are all well around here - finally! We all had a bug around Halloween that kind of lingered for a few weeks. Ugh!

Ben eats the same foods that we do - we started doing this probably around 10-12 months - he is very independent and wanted to do everything himself! So at first I just gave him a modified version of what we were having - cut up/less spicy/whatever, you know? Now he pretty much gets whatever we're having unless it's REALLY spicy (like chili or something). I usually serve at least 1 thing I know he likes (usually it's a bread/pasta) and then I know he'll eat at least something. He is a little picky (he never used to be!) - he won't touch most veggies anymore, but I always serve them and sometimes I get lucky! He is a HUGE snacker/muncher, and I think he would literally snack all day if I didn't intervene!

Overall, he's a pretty good eater. I don't always just serve him what he likes, I don't want to get caught in the trap of always making him something special - so some days he eats less than others.

many thanks to trish for this cutest of siggies!
