Food is Fun

In my pre-parenting days of food obsession I used to worry about whether I'd end up with picky eaters in my family. 

Turns out, I've learned that there are many other things to worry about as a parent, and Cora's picky eating doesn't top the list.

Things seemed to go well when we introduced Cora to solids, but with severe food intolerances, significantly delayed teething, and possibly some sensory issues, eating isn't always the smoothest thing for her.

There are a couple of things that Cora will usually eat, but you can never be sure. Something that has her yelling with glee one day often hits the floor the next.  Homemade soup is a big hit, and the only way I can mix textures in a way that my girl finds acceptable. If it's all cooked together the texture must be similar enough to keep it in her mouth. And soups are a great way to get in the veggies. 

We still make it a priority to enjoy our meals together as a family every day.  It's messy and sometimes it feels like work to plan, shop, cook and clean.

But it's still fun.


  1. I love that she's feeding the kitties. :-) Sweet! Sammi is a picky eater. She started to get particularly picky when she was 2. Ugh.

  2. Oh, that last picture is adorable, LOVE it!!

  3. Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin
    for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

  4. So cute, I love that she's sharing with the cat. That happens at our house too.

    Also, my 3 year old son thinks that Cora and Lauren look alike, he saw the header on your blog and asked if I was looking at pictures of his baby Lauren!

  5. She looks so mature in recent posts! Love that first picture especially, with the big smile :) I'm a big fan of soup too!

  6. Ben feeds our dogs:) Cora is doing great with her spoon and eating. I'm so impressed!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me!
