Like most parents, we have trouble getting Blake to eat his veggies. At dinner last night we had mashed potatoes, Blake's favorite. I decided to cut up some broccoli and disguise it in the potatoes. It didn't work so well, he decided to eat all of Joe's potatoes instead (smart little boy). While Blake was sitting on Joe's lap we gave him a piece of broccoli and Blake proceeded to only eat the top off. He did this with several pieces. It was pretty funny. We figured that most of the vitamins are on the top anyway so he did get some nutritional value.
Here is a picture of the top eaten broccoli. We called them little trees for Blake, although I am sure he didn't understand that.
Here is a side by side comparison of Blake's mashed potatoes with cut up broccoli that he didn't eat and Joe's plate that Blake only ate from.
Just an added cute picture. This is Blake's new smile. If you ask him to smile, this is what you get. In person it is actually so ugly that it's cute. Who couldn't love a face like that.
