The Non-Eater

As stated in the classic film "A Christmas Story", "every family has a kid who won't eat". Well we're a family, and our kid who won't eat is Avie! She's created an art out of getting out of any meal...and I think I've got her figured out.

Long after the rest of us are done with our meals she's still there, it begins with ignoring...

which is followed soon after by avoidance...

which is then followed by reluctantly holding on to a piece of food...

also followed by dropping said food and a very happy Boris...

which is closely followed by any and every distraction, today it happened to be absolutely needing to ride a trike around the back yard.

We're making progress though, we're going to have this girl up to 25lbs. in no time!

Love the Christmas Story reference! Our non-eater is NoJo. When you figure out the secret, let me know!

25 pounds?! On Saturday when she and Piper were sitting next to each other, you mentioned how they were about the same size...well Piper weighed just under 25 pounds at her 18 month appt! So they really are the same size! Avie was so cute on Saturday when she was refusing to eat that hot dog, but loving those skittles!
