foods jackson likes: avocado, sweet potato, apples, pears, bananas, oatmeal, rice cereal, prunes, chicken w/apples.
foods jackson doesn't like: green beans, peas, and carrots (although he will eat some carrots if he's really hungry)
what jackson doesn't know he's eating: green beans, peas, and carrots. last week or so i was thinking of ways to get him to eat more veggies. since sweet potatoes are orange and carrots are orange i tried mixing them (of course less carrots and more sweet potato...we wouldn't want him to catch on!) and he did great. then i thought, how do i get him to eat the green ones...he won't even touch them by themselves. eric said try mixing them with his avocado. success! it's nice to know he's getting at least some veggies in his diet.

another thing about eating. jackson's catching on to the routine when it's time to eat. i put him in his highchair, i get the bib and he leans forward so i can velcro it behind his head. then i get the tray and he lifts his hands so i can attach it to the highchair. my boy is brilliant!
