Just a little food update to put on the books. Jack is a pretty adventurous eater in that he'll try anything once. And he likes most things. His current favorites are chicken, turkey, sausage, and basically any kind of meat. His favorite fruits are bananas and oranges but he also likes cantaloupes, strawberries, and blueberries. I'm trying to give him more dairy and I'm sort of succeeding. He doesn't like string cheese or yogurt but cheddar is okay. I've tried cottage cheese but he thinks it's really weird. (isn't it?) Other things he eats... Butternut squash, hummus, black beans, broccoli, apples, and prunes. Foods he hates? Peas and carrots. Just like mommy.
But his favorite is bolani. What is bolani? Well, from Wikipedia, it's a vegan flat-bread from Afghanistan baked with a vegetable filling. We get it at the farmer's market every Sunday from the nice Afghan lady. His favorite is the spinach filling but he also likes the pumpkin filling. He eats it by the handful! And I really mean a handful because his pincher grasp is pretty poor. :)
