Peas...


See these peas? They were part of Ellie's dinner, mixed in with her macaroni and cheese. I thought that by hiding them in one of her favorite foods, she would eat them. But not so. Instead, (while I was happily rejoicing in the fact that she was actually eating vegetables at dinner tonight!) she would spoon the mac and cheese / pea dish into her mouth, then suck all the cheese off the peas and, when she thought I wasn't looking, take them out of her mouth and throw them under the table. I watched her do it twice, then got up to reprimand her and pick those two little peas off the floor, when I saw that she'd already done it a dozen or more times without my notice!

On the plus side, she can eat foods with a spoon now, like macaroni and cheese, or cottage cheese. In fact, she ate a whole bowl of cottage cheese with a spoon by herself this morning. She can also say cottage cheese, though it comes out more like "cot' cheese". But still, no veggies. Doesn't like veggies.

That's too cute! She knows she doesn't like peas, no matter where you try to hide them... So funny...
