William's favorites

Now that William is one we've switched him over to real milk. I thought this was going to be a challenge but it turns out he loves real milk and made the switch easily. We've also been cutting out bottles which has also been a lot easier than I thought it would be! For the past three days he's only needed a bottle during the day twice. He's so grown up and independent!

For my own records, here are some of William's favorite foods:
  • oatmeal pancakes: 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 1/2 cup oatmeal, 2 eggs, 1/2 tea. baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon, blended until smooth, cooked as pancakes.
  • raspberries
  • blueberries
  • strawberries
  • yogurt smoothies (frozen berries, yogurt and a little milk.)
  • peanut butter
  • Dr. Praeger's spinach littles, broccoli littles and fish sticks
  • shrimp
  • peas with mint
  • yogurt
  • Thai food
  • cheese
  • turkey breast
  • kiwi
It's a pretty long list because he's not really fussy. He takes after his father and only occasionally really obviously loves something he's eating. Berries, cottage cheese, smoothies and peanut butter are a good example of this. The other foods I know he likes because he eats them before he eats anything else on his plate!

He loves to run around the house chasing the dogs, Taylor, me and anyone else he can convince to play with him. He loves to stand behind me, laughing, while I "look" for him then pop out so I can find him. He loves snuggling with his blankie. He loves to bunch up his blanket, curl up on it and sleep with his bum in the air. He loves the water. He loves to be helpful and to get things for me and close the freezer and dishwasher door for me. He loves to scream while we change his diaper. He loves to get stubborn when we tell him he's not allowed to touch something. He loves to laugh when we throw him over our shoulder. He loves Tickle Monster. He loves books in general. He loves when we clap because he's done something well. He loves watching the older neighborhood kids play.

There is so much he loves and it's fun to watch him discover something new every day!!!
