Eating Machine

I remember the months when the ONLY thing Katie wanted to eat was Mommy's milkies.. Not anymore, I tell ya! This little girl wants anything but her mommy's milkies. She is still nursing 3 times a day, but on top of that, she is eating 3-4 jars of baby food plus snacks.

Her favorite jars of baby food are beef and mixed vegetables, chicken noodle dinner, macaroni beef tomato dinner, turkey rice, bananas, and applesauce. She is in Stage 3 foods and the occasional Stage 2 with a little rice cereal to thicken it up.

She has tried most of the baby snacks and loved all of them! The ones we keep around the house are:

She also LOVES Motts for Tots. Aunt Jenn's boyfriend, Brad, works for Dr. Pepper/Motts and supplies us with Motts for Tots and Katie is very grateful! She has learned to hold her sippy cup up enough to get the juice out. It is so cute watching her tilt it this way and that :o)

On top of nursing, baby food, snacks, and juice, Katie manages to "sneak" in a couple of big girl foods, too. Her favorites are crackers, ice cream, spaghetti noodles, rice, grilled chicken, green beans, pineapple, mushrooms, black olives, and OF COURSE Two Two's Butterfinger cake!

A funny story about her that I just have to share. The other afternoon Matt was sitting on the couch eating some leftover pizza, Cooper was laying by the fireplace and Katie was playing in the floor. Within one minute of sitting down, Cooper made his way over to the couch to beg (like usual). Matt gave him a small mushroom and told him to go on his way. Within another minute, Katie had crawled over to the couch to beg. She was standing against her daddy's legs, flapping her arms wildly and making loud noises. So, Matt gave her a small mushroom to chew on. This, in turn, led to more begging from Cooper. The two of them ganged up against Dad and managed to steal quite a bit of his pizza.
